Fisher Price pulled out three models of its infant cradle swings from the market after the company was informed that two cradle swings have fallen. Fisher Price cradle swings were immediately recalled to avoid any additional untoward incidents.
Thousands Of Fisher Price Cradle Swings Recalled
Huffington Post reported that the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimated that about 34,000 Fisher Price cradle swings were recalled. The Fisher Price cradle swing models that were included in the recall were CHM84 Soothing Savanna Cradle 'n Swing, CMR40 Sweet Surroundings Cradle 'n Swing and CMR43 Sweet Surroundings Butterfly Friends Cradle 'n Swing.

Peg Comes Out Of Seat
The two incidents where the Fisher Price cradle swings fell involved a peg coming out of the seat. According to a CPSC, when the Fisher Price cradle swing's seat peg is "not fully engaged," the cradle seat may fall unexpectedly. When this happens, babies may suffer from an injury.
Local 8 Now said that out of the two reported incidents of the Fisher Price cradle swings, none of them resulted to an injury. However, the CSPC still advised owners of the Fisher Price cradle swing to stop using the product.
New Fisher Price Cradle Swing Assembly Instructions
Since the Fisher Price cradle swing recall, owners were also advised to contact the company and ask for new assembly instructions. For those who aren't sure whether the product they're using are included in the Fisher Price cradle swing recall, they can check beneath the pad on the seat for the product number.
Although out of the thousands of Fisher Price cradle swings that are available on the market, only two were reported to have malfunctioned -- but the company is still bent on a Fisher Price cradle swing recall. The two incidents may be considered as isolated cases, but for Fisher Price, it is probably better to issue a recall of more than 34,000 units than wait for a child to sustain injury from usage thereof.
