Frisco, TX—Infant and Toddler Hammock Metal Stands were voluntarily recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the manufacturer, MamaLittleHelper LCC. The CPSC announced the recall on August 24, 2010, over a fall hazard the hammocks pose.
About six hammock stands were recalled after discovering that the C-shaped metal stand can break at the curved arm, where it attaches to the leg of the metal frame. The metal stands pose a fall hazard to infants in the hammock.
The CPSC reported, “The baby hammock hangs from the recalled metal C-shaped stand which is about five feet tall and is silver-colored. The metal C-shaped stands were sent to the six consumers with hammock model numbers 1010 and 1020 instead of the original metal frame advertised with the hammock.”
The metal stands were sold online at www.mamalittlehelper.com from December 2009 through February 2010. The stands sold for about $100 with the hammock.
Consumers are advised to contact MamaLittleHelper to receive a free metal hammock stand in exchange for the recalled C-shaped metal stand. The six consumers who have purchased the stands are being notified by MamaLittleHelper.
For further information, consumers can contact MamaLittleHelper toll-free at (866) 612-9986 between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, visit their website at www.mamalittlehelper.com or email the firm at [email protected]
