Amby Baby Motion Beds Recalled
Posted by PKSD Law Firm on Dec 10, 2009 in Product Recalls
The deaths of two infants have led to the recall of approximately 24,000 Amby Baby Motion Beds. The Amby Baby Motion Beds, made by Amby Baby USA, are marketed to parents of fussy babies with colic or reflux.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the side-to-side shifting or tilting of the hammock can cause an infant to roll or become trapped or wedged against the hammocks fabric or mattress pad, posing a suffocation risk. A 4-month-old from Georgia and a 5-month-old from Oregon died last summer when they suffocated.
The beds resemble a baby swing, but have mesh and fabric sides similar to a hammock. Every time the baby stirs in its sleep, the bed gently moves up and down, back and forth, or side-to-side, mimicking the motion of a baby in the womb.
Safety advocates recommend cribs or bassinets with a firm bottom support and no soft bedding, gaps or other points where they could become trapped.
The Amby beds were sold online through Ambybaby.com and other retailers dating back to 2003. The commission urges consumers to immediately stop using the motion beds.
