MamaRoo Baby Swing Class Action Lawsuit
In August 2022, a class action lawsuit was filed by angry parents who claim that 4moms failed to warn them about deadly safety risks of the now-recalled MamaRoo Baby Swing and RockaRoo Baby Rocker.
The class action was filed after 4moms recalled over 2 million MamaRoo and RockaRoo products after two reports of babies who crawled under the swings and strangled on the dangling straps.
Lawsuit Claims 4moms Waited 3 Years to Recall MamaRoo
The lawsuit claims that 4moms sold the MamaRoo for 3 years after the first report of a baby strangling on the straps, putting profit over the safety of babies:
“4moms was aware of the risk of infant strangulation of the recalled devices in August of 2018, when the first injury of this kind was reported to them. … Yet, defendant continued to manufacture and sell the recalled devices.”
The recall involves more than 2 million MamaRoo Baby Swings (versions 1.0 through 4.0) plus another 220,000 RockaRoo Baby Rockers (Model 4M-012).
What is the Problem?
When the MamaRoo Swing or RockaRoo Rocker is not being used, the restraint straps can dangle under the seat. A baby can crawl under the seat, get their neck twisted in the straps, and strangle to death.
Tragic Death of 10-Month Old Baby; Another Near-Death Reported
The recall was issued after 2 reports of babies who strangled in the straps of a MamaRoo Baby Swing. Tragically, one 10-month-old baby died. Another 10-month-old baby nearly strangled, but was rescued by a caregiver just in time. He suffered bruises on his neck.
Can I Join the Class Action Lawsuit?
The class action would apply to millions of people in the U.S. who purchased 4moms MamaRoo Baby Swings and RockaRoo Rockers between January 2010 and August 2022.
The MamaRoo & RockaRoo Class Action Lawsuit was filed on August 29, 2022 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania – Case Number 2:05-mc-02025.
