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".
Web sites and individual distributors nationwide sold these carrier/slings from January 2001 through July 2001 for between $30 and $40. Also, eight children's boutiques in various states sold these carrier/slings.
Consumers should stop using these carriers/slings immediately and call Maya Wrap at (800) 501-9979 anytime, or go to the firm's web site at www.mayawrap.com for instructions on how to have the carriers/slings repaired.
Carriers/slings with ¼-inch width rings are not included in this recall.
