220,000 portable sleep tents for infants and small children are being voluntarily recalled because of a safety hazard.

The recall of the PeaPod and PeaPod Plus Travel beds took place in part, after a 5-month old boy was found dead last year with his face pressed against the wall of the tent.

There are other reports of children who had problems with the tent's mattress.

The travel tents were made in China and sold at independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from January 2005 until now. They cost between $70 and $100.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the tents have a zippered side and an inflatable air mattress that fits into a zippered pocket. Consumers are being warned to stop using the tents immediately and contact KidCo Inc.
