The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Ellaroo, today announced a voluntary recall of about 1,200 Ellaroo Ring Sling Baby Carriers because the aluminum rings on the sling carriers can bend or break. This can cause the fabric to slip through the rings and infants to fall out of the carrier.
Ellaroo has received four reports of the rings bending and two reports of rings breaking. No injuries have been reported.
This recall includes Ellaroo Ring Sling baby carriers with item numbers 2101 and 2102 printed on the outside of the product box. The Ellaroo Ring Sling has a fabric carrier with two aluminum rings that is worn by the user to carry an infant up to 35 pounds. The carriers are sold in mahogany, mango stone, brasilia and malay color prints. Only sling carriers with lot numbers 03/07 and 07/04 printed on a label, under the size label, inside the Ring Sling are included in the recall.
Consumers should immediately stop using the sling carriers and contact Ellaroo at (800) 483-4902 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m CT Monday through Friday or visit the firm Web site at www.ellaroo.com for instructions on returning the carriers for a repair or replacement Ring Sling.
