A million baby slings recalled over suffocation dangers



Just a couple of weeks ago the government put out a warning on baby Mom_babyslings slings, saying that they might lead to suffocation of some infants. Well now, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with baby sling maker Infantino, is recalling 1-million slings in the U.S. and another 15,000 in Canada. Three deaths in 2009 have been linked to the slings. The slings were sold in the U.S. from January 2003 to March by the San Diego-based manufacturer. If you have one of the slings, you can contact Infantino  toll-free at 1-866-860-1361 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT (that's 11 a.m.-7 p.m. ET) weekdays. Stop using the slings right away, especially for infants ages 4 months and younger. Iif you have had a concern, contact the CPSC.
