   Click to enlarge

Amazonas branded Ring Sling Laguna Baby Slings, free-form slings for transporting infants and small children weighing up to 15 kilograms (approximately 33 pounds), sold with article number of AZ-5060235, a production date/batch designation of 2015-10023 and a UPC/barcode of 4030454004282

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Baby Sling products include suspected inadequate structural integrity in that the Baby Sling can break with consequential risk of child falls and/or injury. Specifically, the recalled Baby Slings can suddenly fail in use and contribute to life-changing injuries.

If the child falls from the Baby Sling, s/he may suffer contusions and broken bones, with the possibility of head injury and brain damage if the child falls from the Sling onto his head from height. Similarly, it is possible that the child will suffer from cervical spine injury with consequential extremity and/or respiratory paralysis.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Amazonas branded Ring Sling Laguna Baby Slings do not comply with the requirements of the relevant European standards and have been ordered recalled immediately.

Consequently, a recall of these products from end users and a withdrawal of the product from the market withdrawn from the European marketplace has been ordered.
