CNN is reporting today that Infantino LLC is recalling 1 million of its SlingRider and Wendy Bellissimo baby slings. This is due to 3 deaths caused by suffocation. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission said today that you should stop using the slings with children younger than 4 months old due to suffocation risks.
The slings were sold in the United States and Canada from January 2003 through March 2010 at these stores:
