Product Recall: Ellaroo infant sling carriers

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Mommy Musts, Shopping and recalls

About 1,200 Ellaroo Ring Sling Baby Carriers are being recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission because of a fall hazard. The aluminum rings on the sling have a tendency to bend or break, which can cause the fabric to slip through and the infant to fall out of the carrier. No injuries have been reported thus far, but there have been four reports of the rings bending and two reports of the rings breaking.


The recall involves Ellaroo Ring Sling baby carriers with item numbers 2101 and 2102 printed on the outside of the box. The sling has a fabric carrier with two aluminum rings and is worn to carry an infant up to 35 pounds. They were sold in mahogany, mango stone, brasilia and malay color prints. Only sling carriers with lot number 03/07 and 07/04 printed on the label (under the size label) are included in this recall.

These slings were manufactured in India for Ellaroo LLC, of McKinney, Texas and sold at juvenile product and department stores nationwide and online, including BabiesRUs.com, from June 2007 through February 2008 for about $100.

If you have one of these slings, you should immediately stop using it and contact Ellaroo for instructions on returning it for a repair or replacement sling. You can reach them by calling (800) 483-4902 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m CT Monday through Friday or by visiting their Web site.
