Dec. 9, 2009 -- A Minnesota company has issued a voluntary recall of about 24,000 of its China-made Amby Baby Motion Beds after two infant deaths, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says.

The CPSC says the company involved, Amby Baby USA of Minneapolis, announced the voluntary recall of the beds, which shift from side to side and can cause babies to roll over and become entrapped or wedged against the hammock’s fabric or mattress pad.

The company says it is aware of two infant suffocation deaths in the Amby Baby hammock.

In June 2009, a 4-month-old girl in Lawrenceville, Ga., died in one of the beds, according to the CPSC. A 5-month-old boy from Gresham, Ore., died in one of the hammocks in August 2009, the CPSC says in a news release.

The Amby Baby Motion Bed consists of a steel frame and a fabric hammock, and the two are connected by a large spring and metal crossbar.

Only one model of the hammock was available, and it can be identified by a label attached to the bed reading, “Amby - Babies Love It, Naturally.”

The beds were sold online at Ambybaby.com and other Internet retailers between January 2003 and October 2009 for about $250, the federal agency says.

“Consumers should immediately stop using the Amby Baby motion beds/hammocks and contact Amby Baby USA for a free repair kit,” the CPSC says. “Parents and caregivers are urged to find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for their baby.”

The CPSC urges people seeking more information to contact Amby Baby USA on a toll-free line at 866-544-9721 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Friday, or to visit the company’s web site at www.ambybaby.com.

The bed does not look like a typical baby crib but appears to hold a child in the air in a sling-like device. It is suspended from a metal bar and connected to the hammock in such a way as to allow it to tilt or shift from side to side. The CPSC has a photo of the bed.

The CPSC says it’s interested in receiving any incident or injury reports related to the product, or which may involve a different hazard than those identified.

It urges consumers to visit its web site at https://www.cpsc.gov/cgibin/incident.aspx for more information.
