Fisher-Price recalls 34,000 infant cradle swings due to fall hazard

By Pamela C. Maloney, J.D.

Fisher-Price, of East Aurora, New York, recalled an estimated 34,000 infant cradle swings because when the seat peg is not fully engaged the seat can fall unexpectedly, posing a risk of injury to the child (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 16-143, April 14, 2016).

Incidents and injuries. Fisher-Price has received two reports of a seat peg coming out from the seat, causing the seat to fall. No injuries have been reported.

Product description. The recall includes three models of the Fisher-Price cradle swings: CHM84 Soothing Savanna Cradle 'n Swing, CMR40 Sweet Surroundings Cradle 'n Swing, and CMR43 Sweet Surroundings Butterfly Friends Cradle 'n Swing. The swings have two different swinging motions—rocking side-to-side, or swinging head-to-toe, and six different swing speeds from low to high. The product number is located on the seat under the pad.

The infant swings, which were manufactured in Mexico, were sold at buybuyBaby, Target, and other stores nationwide, and online at Amazon.com and other websites from November 2015 through March 2016 for about $170.

Remedy. Consumers should stop using the recalled cradle swing immediately and contact Fisher-Price for revised assembly instructions.

Customer contact. Customers may contact Fisher-Price at 800-432-5437 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or online at www.service.mattel.com and click on Recalls & Safety Alerts for more information.
