Descripción del Defecto: ZoloWear Recall of Infant Carriers/Slings NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 23, 2005 Release #05-250 Firm's Recall Hotline: (888) 285-0044 CPSC Recall Hotline: (800) 638-2772 CPSC Media Contact: (301) 504-7908 CPSC, ZoloWear Announce Recall of Infant Carriers/Slings WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product. Name of Product: ZoloWear Infant Carriers/Slings Units: About 165 Manufacturer: ZoloWear Inc., of Austin, Texas Hazard: The stitching that attaches the webbing to the carrier/sling can break, posing a fall hazard to young children. Incidents/Injuries: ZoloWear has received one report of the webbing coming apart from the sling, but the baby was not in the sling at the time. The company has not received any reports of falls or injuries. Description: The recalled slings are made of 100-percent cotton fabric or 97 percent cotton/ 3 percent Lycra with two pieces of webbing holding the rings to the fabric. Solid natural color and five prints (Splash, Pink and Black Stripe, Pink and Brown Stripe, Pink Punch and The Hamptons) make up the lots included in the recall. A large white label sewn on the pocket of the slings reads "Zolo." ZoloWear slings should have three rows of stitching securing the webbing and fabric together. Some of the slings in these lots have short webbing, so only one row of stitching holds the webbing in place. Sold at: The ZoloWear.com Web site, individual distributors, and five children's boutiques in California, Hawaii and Texas sold these slings from May 2005 through August 2005 for between $70 and $90. Manufactured in: U.S. Remedy: Consumers should stop using these carriers/slings immediately and call ZoloWear for instructions on having the carriers/slings repaired. Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact ZoloWear, Inc. at (888) 285-0044 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or e-mail the firm at recall@zolowear.com, or go to the firm's Web site at www.zolowear.com/recall
