More Than 1 Million Baby Slings Recalled

More than a million baby slings were recalled nationwide, Wednesday, after claims they've been linked to three infant deaths.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says babies can suffocate in the soft fabric slings-- made by the company Infantino-- and parents should stop using them immediately for babies under four months.

The recall applies to the "SlingRider" and "Wendy Bellissimo" models.

"Our top priority is the safety of infants whose parents and caregivers use our products," Infantino President Jack Vresics said in a statement.

The slings wrap around adults' chests, allowing them to carry infants hands free.

Baby experts say not all slings are dangerous and they are a good way to calm fussy babies.

Currently, there are no federal safety rules for baby slings, but Infantino is working with the CPSC to create new guidelines.
