The Consumer Product Safety Commission in cooperation with Amby Baby Motion Beds/Hammocks have issued a voluntary recall of Amby Baby Motion beds after reports that two babies died in the hammock over the summer. According to the media release, both babies suffered suffocation deaths, one was a 4-month old girl from Lawrenceville, GA; the other a 5-month old boy from Gresham, Oregon.
The Amby Baby Motion bed has a steel frame with a soft fabric hammock. The hammock is attached to the steel frame with a spring. Because the hammock moves from side to side, babies can either roll out or shift against the hammock’s sling or mattress causing suffocation.
The CPSC advises consumers stop using the product immediately and to contact Amby Baby USA for a repair kit at 866-544-9721.
