WASHINGTON, DC -- CPSC, Graco Children's Products, Inc., Elverson, PA, is voluntarily announcing a retrofit program for certain Graco Carrier Swings and Convert-a-Cradle Swings. In the fully reclined position, infants have pushed themselves up and over the back of the seat. Five infants have fallen backward out of the swing onto the floor, and one was found unconscious suspended upside down. No permanent injuries resulted.
Approximately 208,000 Carrier Swings and Convert-a-Cradle Swings were produced between November 1991 and October 1992 and distributed nationwide.
