Baby Sling Recall

Sheila here.
We just got word about a recall on baby slings. You may remember the federal government put out a warning a few weeks ago about suffocation dangers associated with baby slings.

Here's the story from the Associated Press:
More than 1 million baby slings made by
Infantino are being recalled because the products have been linked
to three infant deaths.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says babies can suffocate
in the soft fabric slings. The agency is urging parents to
immediately stop using the slings for babies under 4 months.
The recall involves 1 million Infantino "SlingRider" and
"Wendy Bellissimo" slings in the United States and 15,000 in
Canada. It follows a warning earlier this month from CPSC that
sling-style baby carriers pose a suffocation risk to newborns.
Infantino President Jack Vresics says the company
will offer a free replacement baby carrier, activity gym or
shopping cart cover to any affected consumer.
