1 million baby slings recalled

By WebMD Health News. On the heels of a warning that baby slings can kill infants, Infantino LLC has recalled 1 million of the products in the U.S. and 15,000 in Canada.

At least three children died in these slings in 2009: a 7-week-old in Philadelphia, a 6-day old infant in Salem, Ore., and a 3-month-old in Cincinnati.

Infantino is recalling two popular brands of the slings: the “Wendy Bellissimo” sold exclusively at Babies ‘R’ Us; and the “SlingRider” sold at Walmart, Burlington Coat Factory, Target, BJ’s Wholesale, and other stores since January 2003.
