A Popular Baby Swing Is Being Recalled After A Baby Got Tangled In Its Straps And Died

Gary Waters, CEO of 4moms, said in a statement that the company takes “every precaution” to ensure all its products meet “applicable safety standards.”

“We are deeply saddened by the two incidents that occurred when babies crawled under the seat of unoccupied MamaRoo swings,” he said. “After investigating the circumstances behind these two incidents, 4moms decided to conduct a voluntary recall in partnership with the CPSC.

“The free strap fastener kit we have designed is an easy-to-install solution that we believe will prevent any other incidents from happening when a MamaRoo or RockaRoo is not in use and an infant crawls under the seat. We strongly urge our consumers, retailers, and re-seller partners to implement the strap fastener solution to ensure the complete safety of our products.”
