CPSC, Hamacas Recall Baby Hammocks

PRODUCT: Baby Hammocks - Hamacas, of Yelm, Wash., recalled 53 baby hammocks. The baby hammocks are 6-foot-long mini-hammocks. They are woven from thin cotton strings with nylon end strings in solid or multi-striped colors. The label attached to the end loop reads, "WOVEN BY HAND AND MADE IN YUCATAN MEXICO." Hamacas sold these hammocks on their web site as model number HA005 from January through April 2000 for about $20.

PROBLEM: Without spreader bars to hold the mini-hammock bed open, the mini-hammocks can suddenly twist around children's' necks and strangle them. Also, infants sleeping on soft bedding can become wedged in positions in which they cannot breathe.

INCIDENTS/INJURIES:No injuries have been reported with these hammocks, but between 1984 and 1995, CPSC received reports of 12 deaths of children in other mini-hammocks. CPSC also recommends that babies never be placed on soft bedding. To prevent suffocation, babies should sleep in a crib on a firm, flat mattress on their backs with no pillows or other soft bedding.

WHAT TO DO:Consumers with one of these hammocks should stop using it immediately. For additional information, contact Hamacas at (360) 493-6600 or e-mail Hamacas at to receive an adult replacement hammock.
