CPSC, Maya Wrap Announce Recall of Infant Carriers/Slings

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Maya Wrap, of Omaha, Neb., is voluntarily recalling about 5,000 infant carriers/slings. The welds of the metal rings that support the carriers/slings can break, posing a fall hazard to young children.

Maya Wrap has received 20 reports of the rings breaking. The company received a report that one child fell to the ground but no injuries were reported.

The recalled carriers/slings are made of 100-percent cotton fabric with two metal support rings. The rings measure 1/8-inch in width. They were sold in a variety of colors, prints, and sizes. A large white label sewn in the slings reads in part, "MAYA WRAP" and "ECHO EN GUATEMALA".
