CPSC is urging parents and caregivers to stop using the “SlingRider” and “Wendy Bellisimo” baby slings made by Infantino. We are aware of three deaths associated with these slings, which could pose a risk of suffocation to babies younger than four months. If you have one of these recalled slings, call Infantino right away to receive free replacement products.

Two weeks ago, CPSC issued a general warning to parents and caregivers to be cautious when using infant slings for babies younger than four months of age. Twelve of the 14 deaths we are aware of over the past 20 years involved babies in this age range. Watch our safety video on slings on YouTube at www.youtube.com/uscpsc

Due to the potential suffocation hazard some slings can pose to babies, CPSC urges all consumers to share this safety warning with friends, family, day care centers, and consignment stores.
