HONEY JOY Infant Swings Recalled for Suffocation Risk
A recall has been issued for HONEY JOY infant swings, which were exclusively sold on Amazon.com. The reason behind the recall is a serious safety concern – these swings violate federal safety standards and could potentially lead to suffocation risks for infants.
The swing is in breach of the Safe Sleep for Babies Act due to its marketing for infant sleep and its incline angle exceeding 10 degrees. Tragically, incidents of infant fatalities have been linked to inclined sleepers, where babies rolled from their back to their stomach or side without any restraints, or in other similar situations. The swing is also in violation of the Safety Standard for Infant Swings.
Violation of Safety Standards
The primary reason for the recall of Honey Joy infant swings is their failure to meet federal safety standards for such products. These standards are put in place to ensure the well-being of infants and to prevent potential hazards. In this case, the swings do not comply with the safety regulations, posing a significant risk to babies.
Swing Models Affected
The recall specifically pertains to two models of Honey Joy infant swings: BB5569US-GR (gray) and BB5569US-BE (beige). These swings are constructed using a combination of metal and plastic, with a cloth seat. They have approximate dimensions of 28 inches in width, 28 inches in height, and 24 inches in depth. Notably, the word “Babyjoy” is prominently displayed on both the front of the swings and the seat label.
These swings come equipped with several features, including a head pillow, a five-point restraint system, a canopy with hanging toys, music functionality, and an adjustable seat. They can be powered using AAA batteries or an AC adaptor and even include a remote control with Bluetooth functionality. To identify the specific model, consumers can refer to the packaging (full model number), instructional literature (identifies model BB5569), or the product registration card (model BB5569US).

If you are in possession of one of these recalled Honey Joy infant swings, it is imperative to stop using it immediately. The safety of your child is of utmost importance. To address this issue, you should contact HONEY JOY promptly. They will provide you with detailed instructions on how to return the product and receive a full refund.
