RECALL:Fisher-Price Rainforest Infant Swing Due to Entrapment Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Fisher-Price of East Aurora, New York, today announced a voluntary recall of more than 110,000 Rainforest Open Top Take-Along™ Swings. Consumers should stop using the swings immediately. Infants can shift to one side of the swing and become caught between the frame and seat, posing an entrapment hazard. Fisher-Price has received 60 reports of the infants becoming entrapped, resulting in cuts, bumps, bruises and red marks. This recall involves Portable Rainforest Take Along Swings with a palm tree mobile and two hanging plush toys. The swings are approximately 23-inches-high and have two carry handles on the left and right sides. Model numbers K7203, K7192 and K7195 are included in the recall. Model numbers are located under the right handle on the swing. No other collection of Rainforest swings or products are included in this recall. The swings were sold at discount department stores and toy stores nationwide from November 2006 to May 2007 for about $65.
Consumers should immediately stop using the swing and contact Fisher-Price for instructions on how to return it to receive a voucher for a replacement product. For additional information, call Fisher-Price toll-free at 888-303-5631 anytime, or visit
