Baby Trend Has Recalled Infant Swings Sold at Toys R Us

Ontario, CA (SafetyAlerts) - Baby Trend Inc. has recalled about 15,000 infant swings. A screw on the swing's support arm can loosen or detach, causing the seat to separate and drop to one side. This presents a fall hazard to infants.

Baby Trend has received 10 reports of the screws loosening. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves "Trend Swing" stationary infant swings, model numbers 8711 and 8722 found on a label on the bottom of the seat. The swings were sold in khaki/gingham and navy/white plaid, and feature a toy bar, song player and timer. "Baby Trend" is printed on the front of the seat's tray and "Trend Swing" is printed on the arm. "Baby Trend" and "Made in China" are also printed on the label on the bottom of the seat.

Toys R Us stores sold these swings nationwide from November 2001 through September 2002 for between $60 and $90.

Consumers should stop using these recalled swings immediately and contact Baby Trend to receive a free repair kit.
