Massive Baby Sling Recall Could Affect Thousands of California Families

Sacramento Wrongful Death lawyer

According to the Los Angeles Times, Infantino has recalled more than 1 million baby slings after three infants suffocated.

If the slings are determined to have a design defect, a manufacturing defect or a marketing defect, the manufacturer, distributor, or even retail seller could be held liable in a products liability case.

Earlier this March, the Consumer Product Safety Commission stated that it was investing 14 deaths over the last 20 years related to the use of baby slings. The CPSC has now advised consumers to stop using the slings with infants younger than four months and not to try to fix the carriers, but to replace them instead. Because young babies have little motor control of their head, they are at risk for suffocation.

Liability for a defective product is established in one of three ways:
  • The product is designed defectively. A product has a defective design when the foreseeable risks of harm could have been reduced or eliminated by using a different design.
  • The product has a manufacturing defect. An error in the manufacturing process causes a few or many of a particular product to be defective. A product is also considered defective if the manufacturer fails to provide adequate warnings regarding the dangers of improper use.
  • Marketing defects. A distributor and seller of a product may be held strictly liable in a case where the marketing is misleading.
The slings were sold from January 2003 through March 2010 at Target, Walmart, Babies R Us, Amazon.com and many other children's stores throughout the U.S. and Canada.

As a California personal injury attorney concerned about product safety, I urge you to stop using the recalled sling and contact Infantino or this office for more information about the sling or any other dangerous product.
