Fisher-Price announced a recall of approximately 34,000 cradle swings spanning three separate models earlier this month due to a potential falling hazard. Models of the CHM84 Soothing Savanna Cradle ‘n Swing, CMR40 Sweet Surroundings Cradle ‘n Swing, and the CMR43 Sweet Surroundings Butter Friends Cradle ‘n Swing are all subject to the recall. Owners are encouraged to review their swing’s product number found on the seat under the pad to determine whether their swing is affected.
The Cradle n’ Swings came equipped with two different swinging motions – rocking side-to-side, or swinging head-to-toe, and six different speeds from low to high. Swings were manufactured in Mexico and sold at stores nationwide including Buy Buy Baby, Target, Amazon, as well as other retail storefronts and websites from about November 2015 to March 2016 for approximately $170.
Fisher-Price issued the recall shortly after receiving reports of two models experiencing issues with the seat peg coming dislodged from the seat, causing the seat to fall. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should discontinue use of the swings immediately and contact Fisher-Price for revised assembly instructions. You can reach Fisher-Price at 1-800-432-5437 between the hours of 9am to 6pm or online at www.service.mattel.com and clicking on “Recalls & Safety Alerts” for more information.
