More than 1 million baby slings recalled

More than one million baby slings produced by the company Infantino are being recalled due to suffocation concerns.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says parents with children younger than 4 months should stop using the slings immediately. The slings have been linked to three infant deaths.

The recall involves one million Infantino "SlingRider" and "Wendy Bellissimo" slings in the United States and 15,000 in Canada.

Infantino will offer a free replacement baby carrier, activity gym or shopping cart cover to any affected consumer.
