Fisher-Price Cradle Swing Recall Issued Over Loose Peg, Fall Risk
Roughly 34,000 infant cradle swings have been recalled by Fisher-Price, following reports of problems where the seat peg detached, posing a fall and injury hazard for infants.
The Fisher-Price Cradle n’ Swings recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on April 14, after the manufacturer received at least two consumer reports that the seat peg dislodged, causing the infants to fall from the seat.
The cradle and swing combinations are being recalled due to a potential tip-over and fall hazard that can be caused by the dislodging of the seat peg if it is not assembled properly.

The seat is attached to the frame by aligning the grooves on the base of the cradle seat with the frame, which is held in place by the peg. In the event that the peg is not fully fastened during assembly, the seat may fall away from the stand, potentially causing injuries to infants.
The recall includes 34,000 Fisher-Price cradle swings sold under three model names. The recalled models are CHM84 Soothing Savanna Cradle ‘n Swing, CMR40 Sweet Surrounding Cradle n’ Swing, and CMR43 Sweet Surrounding Butterfly Friends Cradle n’ Swing. The swings have the ability to rock either front to back or side to side with six adjustable speeds from low to high. The product name brand and number can be located on the seat under the pad.
The recalled infant swings were manufactured in Mexico under Fisher-Price of East Aurora, New York, where they were sold at buybuyBaby, Target, and various other retailers across the U.S. and also online at Amazon.com and other websites from November 2015 through March 2016 for about $170.
Customers are being asked to stop using the recalled swings immediately and contact Fisher-Price at 800-432-5437 or visit them online at www.service.mattel.com and navigate to the “Recalls & Safety Alerts” link for information about how to receive revised assembly instructions.
