60,000+ Infant Swings Recalled for Federal Safety Regulation Violation

According to a KSAT News report, Jool Baby has voluntarily issued a recall on one of its infant swings to avoid suffocation risk.

According to the announcement on Jool Baby’s website, Nova swings manufactured from July 2022 through September 2023 have been voluntarily recalled to comply with CPSCs new Safe Sleep for Babies Act. The swings are marketed for infant sleep but have an inclined angle of more than 10 degrees, which proposes a risk of infant suffocation. The notice also mentions there have been no injuries resulting from this product but that the recall is out of an abundance of caution. The swings are gray and have a canopy with a yellow moon, blue cloud, and pink star hanging from it. They were sold at Walmart, Target, and Amazon. You can register to see if your swing was recalled here.

Did You Know?

Accidental injuries are the 4th leading cause of death for infants in the United States.

Defective Baby Product Suffocation Injuries in Texas

Soft, fluffy bedding is not the only way your infant could suffer a suffocation injury at home.

Products made for infants in the United States are supposed to be safe. There are federally regulated standards designers and manufacturers must meet to sell their products. So why is accidental suffocation the most common injury among infants in the United States?

Some of the products sold to unsuspecting parents across Texas may not be safe for their children. Even though there are regulations in place, manufacturers are required to test and report their adherence to these standards, and many do. But there can be tragic consequences when they don’t.

Baby Slings

Baby slings are incredibly popular and commonly advertised to parents as a stylish and comfortable way to carry their baby. But they could pose a suffocation risk.

Very young children can easily be suffocated by the fabric of the sling or their parent’s clothing because infants are largely unable to move their heads. If a sling is designed to hold a child at an unsafe angle, the baby could easily suffocate in only a few minutes.

Inclined Infant Sleepers/Swings

Infant sleepers have been recalled many times over the years for their risk of infant suffocation.

FisherPrice famously recalled the Rock n’ Play sleeper after there were at least 30 fatalities associated with the product. The CPSC investigated over 1,000 reports of infant injury related to inclined sleepers, with 75% being fatal between 2009 and 2019. Needless to say, infant sleepers are not always designed with infant safety in mind.

Weighted Swaddles/Infant Blankets

Though marketed as safe, pediatricians warn against the use of weighted swaddled and wearable infant blankets because they pose a potential suffocation risk.

There have been no reports of injury from these weighted infant products, and clinical trials have been presented to show that they are safe. However, the AAP debates the validity of these trials, pointing out that no evidence exists to prove the product’s safety in an unmonitored setting.
