4moms remembers millions of baby swings and rockers

4moms, which makes products for young children, issued a recall of the MamaRoo Baby Swing — versions 1.0 through 4.0 — and the RockaRoo Baby Rockers, the CPSC said.
“When the swing or bouncer is not in use, its straps can dangle under the seat and crawling infants who are not in use can become entangled in the straps, posing a strangulation hazard,” the CPSC indicated.
The recall affects 2 million MamaRoo swings and 220,000 RockaRoo rockers, according to the CPSC information. The CPSC also indicated that 60,000 MamaRoo swings and 10,000 RockaRoo rockers were sold in Canada.

“4moms has received two reports of entanglement incidents involving infants who became caught in the strap under the freestanding MamaRoo infant swing after they crawled under the seat, including a 10-month-old infant who died of suffocation, and a 10-month-old infant who suffered bruises on the neck before being rescued by a caregiver,” a statement from the CPSC and 4moms indicated. “No incidents involving RockaRoo have been reported.”

The statement from 4moms and the CPSC recommends that those with the products “immediately stop using the recalled swings and bouncers, place them in an area where crawling infants cannot access and contact 4moms immediately to register for a free strap attachment that will prevent the straps from extends under the swing when not in use.”

Baby swingers and rockers have been involved in a number of new recalls. Kids II Rocking Sleepers were linked to five infant deaths and Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play sleepers were linked to more than 30 infant deaths over 10 years.
TJX agreed to pay a $13 million fine earlier this month for selling these products in TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Home Goods stores from March 2014 to October 2019 after they were removed from the market.
