Baby Slings Recalled

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has upgraded last month’s warning to a recall concerning baby slings after several infants’ deaths were linked to the baby slings. One million Infantino “Sling Rider” and “Wendy Bellissimo” baby slings are being recalled after 3 infant deaths were reported. The CPSC is urging consumers to immediately stop using the baby slings for infants younger than four months due to the risk of suffocation and death.
According to the release issued by the CPSC, “Infantino LLC sold the slings in the United States and Canada from January 2003 through March 2010 at Walmart, Burlington Coat Factory, Target, Babies “R” Us, BJ’s Wholesale, and various baby and children’s stores and other retailers nationwide, and on the Web at for between $25 and $30.”
