Seems like there’s a recall of a new product every day. Today I stumbled across this recall of a baby hammock because it poses a suffocation hazard to your little one(s). MamaLittleHelper LLC manufactured an Infant and Toddler Hammock that has been receiving reports of it becoming unbalanced causing the baby to shift inside.
There were approximately 500 of these hammocks in circulation. They were sold exclusively through MamaLittleHelper.com between May 2008 and February 2010. The retail price was anywhere between $100 and $230 depending on the model purchased.
Description: This recall includes MamaLittleHelper Hammocks with model numbers 1010, 1020 and BL222. They have a steel frame and a fabric hammock with a mattress which are connected by a large spring, safety rope and a metal hanger. Model BL222 has a computerized rocker device. “MamaLittleHelper” is printed on a label sewn onto the hammock models 1010 and 1020. Model BL222 does not have a label.
As a South Carolina personal injury lawyer I have to stress that if you have one of these baby hammocks you should stop using it immediately and find a safe alternative to use for your baby/infant. You don’t want your baby to suffer a serious accident .
You should contact MamaLittleHelper to receive your repair kit (for models 101 and 1020). However if you have the model BL222 hammock you should return it to the company directly and they’ll exchange it for you. They don’t have a repair kit for the BL222 series.
You can also order a repair kit online at their website: MamaLittleHelper.com/recall.htm You may also reach them directly on the phone at: 866.612.9986.
