The recall involves MamaRoo models using a three-point harness: versions 1.0 and 2.0 (model number 4M-005), version 3.0 (model number 1026) and version 4.0 (model number 1037). The RockaRoo rocker that is being recalled has the model number 4M-012, which can be found below.
Households where children may crawl should stop using retractable swings and rockers and place them where children cannot reach them. Those who have the recalled product can register for a free strap fastener to prevent the straps from stretching under the swing when not in use.
“We deeply regret the two incidents that occurred when children crawled under empty Mamaroo seats,” 4moms CEO Gary Waters said in an emailed statement. “The Free Strap Fastener Kit we designed is an easy-to-install solution that we believe will prevent another incident from occurring,” he added.
