Infantino recalls more than 1 million baby slings

By Blake Ellis, staff reporter

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Infantino LLC is recalling more than 1 million baby slings after three infant deaths were reported, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

The CPSC said consumers should immediately stop using the slings for children younger than four months due to suffocation risks.

Infantino's baby slings that are being recalled

Since 2009, the CPSC received reports of three deaths due to the slings, of infants aged 7 weeks, 6 days and 3 months.

Infantino sold the slings in the United States and Canada from January 2003 through March 2010 at stores including Wal-Mart (WMT, Fortune 500), Burlington Coat Factory, Target (TGT, Fortune 500), Babies "R" Us and online at Amazon.com (AMZN, Fortune 500) for between $25 and $30.

The CPSC said Infantino is offering free replacement products for the company's SlingRider and Wendy Bellissimo baby slings, which are carriers with padded shoulder straps worn by parents to carry children weighing up to 20 pounds.

Consumers can contact Infantino toll-free at (866) 860-1361 between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's Web site at www.infantino.com to receive a free replacement product. Consumers may choose between a Wrap & Tie carrier, a 2 in 1 Shopping Cart Cover or a 3 in 1 Grow & Play Activity Gym.  To top of page
