Baby Swing Recall

December 9, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling Amby Baby Motion Beds. It's a hammock type swing seen in video provided by the manufacturer. The problem: the swing poses a suffocation hazard because the design can cause infants to roll and become trapped against the fabric or mattress pad.

"The design of the bed and the age of the child being that young prohibited the child from correcting itself to a supine - face up - position ... Where the airway was not obstructed," said Medical Examiner's Investigator Eddie Reeves.

More than 20,000 of these swings have been sold online since 2003.

The recall came up after a Georgia investigators said it led to the death of a four-month-old girl.

This latest recall comes just weeks after drop-side cribs and baby strollers were recalled because of their own safety dangers.
