Safety alert for baby sling firm

A company which produces baby slings implicated in the deaths of three children in the US was warned of the dangers the carriers posed nearly four years ago.

Over one million slings made by California-based Infantino were subject to a worldwide recall last week over fears that they pose a threat.

More than 10,000 of the SlingRider baby carriers have been sold in the UK. It is alleged a baby's nose and mouth can be blocked if pressed against the sling's fabric, causing suffocation within minutes.
