Faulty peg spurs Fisher-Price baby swing recall

Posted at 9:13 PM, Apr 14, 2016

Fisher-Price announced a recall on Thursday of 34,000 Cradle 'n Swing units due to a seat peg coming out from the seat, causing the seat to fall. Though Fisher-Price said there have been two reported incidents of the seat peg coming out, it has not caused any injuries. 

Said Fisher-Price in a statement, the recall includes three models of the Fisher-Price cradle swings: CHM84 Soothing Savanna Cradle 'n Swing, CMR40 Sweet Surroundings Cradle 'n Swing and CMR43 Sweet Surroundings Butterfly Friends Cradle 'n Swing. The swings have two different swinging motions - rocking side-to-side, or swinging head-to-toe, and six different swing speeds from low to high. The product number is located on the seat under the pad. 

The units were sold at buybuyBaby, Target and other stores nationwide and online at and other websites from November 2015 through March 2016 for about $170.

Those with the unit are encouraged not to use the unit until calling Fisher-Price at 800-432-5437 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday to get proper instructions. Without a remedy, the unit could cause a child to experience a leg injury.
