Stay Up To Date With Baby Swing Recalls That May Affect Your Little One

Thankfully baby swing recalls are few and far between and I'm glad to say that there haven't been any at all in recent months. However, a baby swing is one of those exciting baby items that almost every home has, so it's important to be aware of recalls when they do happen.

In addition, since baby swings are one of those baby items that are often handed down, there are still unsafe, previously recalled models in circulation. (I can't even remember who has my baby swing now - it's changed hands so many times.)

Unsafe baby swings can cause all sorts of injuries, ranging from bumps and bruises to entrapment and strangulation.

If you have a baby swing that has been handed down to you or that you purchased second hand, please check it against the baby swing recall report before you put your precious baby in it.


Everything you need to check out your baby swing is right here - Each baby product recall report includes:
  • The date of the recalled baby product.
  • Descriptions and pictures of the recalled swing.
  • Where the swings were sold and during what time period.
  • Why they were recalled.
  • What you should do if you have one of these items.
  • Who to contact for additional information.


The baby swing recall report is updated weekly, so be sure to check back often in case the swing you received last month as a gift is suddenly recalled!

13 April 2000, Graco Children's Products Recalls Infant Swings (revised: 29 July 2002)


graco infant swings


Reason For The Baby Swing Recall:

The restraint systems on swings made before 1997 consist of a waist belt only and a hinged or removable tray, which serves as a restraint. If parts are missing, the restraints are not used, or the tray pops off, your baby can slip down into the seat and strangle or fall from the swing.

There have been six deaths. These occurred when parts were missing or the restraints were not used and infants slid down the swings' seats and became tangled in the restraints. In five instances, the swings were second hand. Of 209 incidents, 181 were reports of infants falling from the swing. In nine of the falls, infants suffered serious injuries including bone fractures and concussions. Twenty-two infants were caught at the neck or chest.


Description Of The Baby Swing:

7 million Infant Swings are being recalled. The swings are battery-powered or wind-up, and are either the traditional A-frame or open top design. Some models have removable seats, which can be used as an infant carrier. Graco will help consumers identify swings that need new safety restraints.

These baby swings were sold at mass merchandise, juvenile products and major discount stores nationwide through approximately January 1998 for between $70 to about $120.


What Should You Do?

Stop using the baby swing immediately. Graco is offering a free, new safety restraint to replace the swings' old restraint systems. The safety restraint kit comes with instructions and can be installed easily. The new safety system has a buckle that ensures the crotch strap is used each time the waist belt is buckled, so that infants are securely fastened into the swings.

To receive the free safety restraint or for additional information on this baby swing recall, contact Graco at (800) 345-4109 anytime.

The injuries include a skull fracture, bumps, bruises and scrapes to the head. According to the reports, some injuries occurred to infants who were restrained in the seat.
