Maya Wrap Announces Recall of Infant Carriers/Slings

Omaha, Neb. (SafetyAlerts) - Maya Wrap is voluntarily recalling about 5,000 infant carriers/slings. The welds of the metal rings that support the carriers/slings can break, posing a fall hazard to young children.

Maya Wrap has received 20 reports of the rings breaking. The company received a report that one child fell to the ground but no injuries were reported.

The recalled carriers/slings are made of 100-percent cotton fabric with two metal support rings. The rings measure 1/8-inch in width. They were sold in a variety of colors, prints, and sizes. A large white label sewn in the slings reads in part, "MAYA WRAP" and "ECHO EN GUATEMALA".

Web sites and individual distributors nationwide sold these carrier/slings from January 2001 through July 2001 for between $30 and $40. Also, eight children's boutiques in various states sold these carrier/slings.

Consumers should stop using these carriers/slings immediately and call Maya Wrap at (800) 501-9979 anytime.

Carriers/slings with ┬╝-inch width rings are not included in this recall.
