Following the recent warning about using slings, the CPSC and Infantino have recalled one million SlingRider Baby Slings after three babies died in them last year. Consumers should stop using the recalled slings immediately and contact Infantino to receive a free replacement product, with a choice of a Wrap & Tie infant carrier, or a 2 in 1 Shopping Cart Cover, or a 3 in 1 Grow & Play Activity Gym. A Jittery Pals Rattle will also be provided. Contact Infantino toll-free at (866) 860-1361 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.infantino.com.
You can read the CPSC press release here – there’s also a photo of one additional sling style.
