Over 2 Million Baby Swings Recalled After Death of Infant
The baby tech company, 4moms, announces the recall of their infant baby swing referred to as the MamaRoo, and rocker, the RockaRoo after multiple incidents were reported stating the products put infants in danger and led to the death of a 10-month-old baby.
Currently, the company stated they received two reports of infants getting caught in a strap attached to the swing. In one instance, the 10-month strangled and died after getting trapped by the product strap.
The swing and rocker, which are supposed to mimic the movements of an infant being held, are sold through popular retailers such as Amazon, BuyBuy Baby, and Target.
The models included in this recall are as follows: 3-point harness versions 1.0 and 2.0 (model number 4M-005), version 3.0 (model number 1026), and version 4.0 (model number 1037) along with the rocker with model number 4M-012.
If you own a MamaRoo or RockaRoo, you can find the model number on the base of the product above the serial number. If your swing or rocker is recalled, move the product out of children’s reach and contact 4moms to register for a free strap fastener that prevents the strap from extending under the swing.
