INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Fisher-Price says it’s recalling its infant cradle swings due to a fall hazard.

According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website, the Cradle ‘n Swings is being recalled.

The swing is considered a hazard because when the seat peg is not fully engaged, the seat can fall unexpectedly, posing a risk of injury to the child.

The recall includes three models of the Fisher-Price cradle swings:

  • CHM84 Soothing Savanna Cradle ‘n Swing
  • CMR40 Sweet Surroundings Cradle ‘n Swing
  • CMR43 Sweet Surroundings Butterfly Friends Cradle ‘n Swing

The product number is located on the seat under the pad.

The swings either rock side-to-side or swing head-to-toe. They have six different swing speeds from low to high.

There have been two reports of a seat peg coming out from the seat, causing the seat to fail. No injuries have been reported.

The products sold from Nov. 2015 through March,  at buybuyBaby, Target and other stores nationwide online at Amazon.com and other websites are part of the recall.

Fisher-Price said consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cradle swing and contact Fisher-Price for revised assembly instructions.
