More Than 1 Million Baby Carriers Recalled 

More than one million baby slings are being recalled because the products have been linked to three infant deaths. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the slings can cause suffocation. This follows an earlier warning by the C-P-S-C that the baby sling could pose a suffocation risk to newborns. The recall involves one million Infantino “SlingRider” and “Wendy Bellissimo” slings in the United States and 15,000 in Canada. The Infantino “SlingRider” is a soft fabric baby carrier with a padded shoulder strap that is worn by parents and caregivers to carry an infant weighing up to 20 lbs. “Wendy Bellissimo” branded sling carriers were sold exclusively at Babies “R” Us. If you have one of these slings, stop using them immediately and contact Infantino at 866-860-1361 or visit their website at to receive a free replacement product.
