Infantino Recalls 1 Million Baby Slings Due to Infant Suffocation Risk, Reports of Deaths


Baby product manufacturer Infantino—in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)—is recalling more than 1 million baby slings sold at retailers nationwide due to a suffocation risk to infants and three deaths associated with the devices.

If your child was injured or suffered wrongful death due to an Infantino baby sling or other defective product, an experienced product liability attorney may be able to help you hold the negligent party accountable and recover financial compensation for resulting medical expenses and other damages.

The Infantino recall affects about 1 million baby slings with the following product names:

  • SlingRider
  • Wendy Bellissimo

The basby slings in question were sold between 2003 and 2010 at several national retailers, including Target, Burlington Coat Factory and Babies R Us.

The CPSC had previously warned about the baby slings posing a suffocation risk to infants, especially those under 4 months of age. In an announcement regarding the recall, the CPSC said three deaths within the past year were associated with the Infantino baby slings.

Consumers with these baby slings should stop using them immediately and contact Infantino regarding replacement.
