One Million Infantino Slings Recalled

Consumers should stop using the recalled slings immediately and contact Infantino to receive a free replacement product, with a choice of a Wrap & Tie infant carrier, or a 2 in 1 Shopping Cart Cover, or a 3 in 1 Grow & Play Activity Gym. A Jittery Pals Rattle will also be provided. Contact Infantino toll-free at (866) 860-1361 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.infantino.com.

    That is so sad about the three babies. Their mothers must be devastated :(

    I had one of these slings, and I was genuinely concerned about their safety. It didn't get much use.

    I was consigning a few baby items recently and I thought against including it in the sale because it just didn't seem safe.

    I threw it away not more than two weeks ago! I wish I held onto it -- I could have maybe gotten another carrier or something else.

    @Kacie - Good for you for trusting your mothering instincts and following your common sense. You might want to give them a call, or maybe you can dig up the receipt - you never know, they might send you the replacement anyway.
