HONEY JOY Infant Swings Recalled Due to Potential Suffocation Hazard
HONEY JOY COMPANY has initiated a recall of their Infant Swings due to a significant suffocation hazard and a violation of federal safety standards. These products, marketed exclusively on Amazon.com, are now considered to pose serious risks to infants.
The recall centers around models BB5569US-GR in gray and BB5569US-BE in beige. These infant swings are constructed with metal and plastic and feature a cloth seat. They are characterized by their dimensions, approximately 28 inches in width and height and 24 inches in width. The brand name “Babyjoy” is prominently displayed on the front of the swings and also on the seat label.
These swings have unique features, including a head pillow, a five-point restraint system, and a canopy with hanging toys. Additionally, they are equipped with a music function and an adjustable seat for the comfort of the infant. They can be operated using AAA batteries or an AC adaptor and come with a remote control offering Bluetooth functionality. Consumers might recognize the model number BB5569 from the packaging and the instructional literature, and those who have kept their product registration card may identify the product with the model number BB5569US.
This product has been found to violate the Safe Sleep for Babies Act, as it has been marketed for infant sleep, featuring an incline angle more than the permissible 10 degrees. There have been instances where infants, in similar inclined sleepers have suffered fatalities after rolling from their back to their stomach or side when they were not properly restrained, among other circumstances. These critical non-compliances with the Safety Standard for Infant Swings render these products unsafe for infant use.
The affected units, approximately 170 in number, were sold online exclusively at Amazon.com between November 2022 and January 2023, retailing between $110 and $120. The distributor of the product, HONEY JOY COMPANY, is based in Fontana, California, and the swings have been manufactured in China. While there have not been any incidents or injuries reported in connection with the recalled swings, immediate discontinuation of their use is strongly advised.
Customers who have purchased this infant swing should contact HONEY JOY immediately for guidance on receiving a full refund and information on how to dispose of the product correctly. Proactive steps are being taken by both HONEY JOY and Amazon to contact all known purchasers to inform them about the recall.
To get more information regarding the recall or to initiate the refund process, consumers can reach HONEY JOY through email at [email protected], or they can visit the specified pages on Amazon.com and navigate to “More” and then “Recall” on the menu bar.
This recall is a stern reminder about the potential risks associated with infant products that do not adhere to federal safety standards. The quick action by HONEY JOY and Amazon aims to mitigate any possible harm to infants due to the violation of safety standards by ensuring that all customers are informed and reimbursed and unsafe products are properly disposed of.
