Amby Baby USA of Minneapolis, Minnesota, the manufacturer of Amby Baby Motion Beds, has recalled this product due to a risk that the side-to-side shifting or tilting of the hammock can cause the infant to roll and become entrapped or wedged against the mattress pad or fabric resulting in suffocation. The manufacturer reports of at least two known infant deaths as a result of this product including the death of a 4-month-old girl in Lawrenceville, Ga in June, 2009 and the death of a 5-month-old boy from Gresham, Ore in August, 2009. The Amby Baby Motion Bed consists of a steel frame and a fabric hammock which are connected by a large spring and metal crossbar. There is only one model of the hammock available which can be identified by a label sewn onto the hammock stating: “Amby – Babies Love It, Naturally.” Consumers should immediately discontinue the use of this product and contact the manufacturer for a free repair kit by calling 866.544.9721 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm's website at www.ambybaby.com. Parents and caregivers are recommended and urged to find an alternative/safe sleeping environment for their baby.
