New York, NY — The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Dream On Me Inc have voluntarily recalled Happy Swing II infant swings for strangulation hazards that the defective product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on October 18, 2012.
The swings were recalled after discovering that the opening between the tray and seat, or the grab bar and seat, can allow the child’s body to slip through and become trapped at the neck, which poses a strangulation hazard.
The Happy Swing II is a fabric infant swing that comes in red and green with a tray and grab bar attachment. The model/style number included in the recall is “432” which is printed on a label on the frame of the swing. The fabric swing sits on a triangular frame and is battery operated,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers are advised to contact Dream On Me for a replacement product.
