PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — As we first reported Thursday, 34,000 infant cradle swings are being recalledbecause babies could potentially fall from them.

Fisher-Price said so far, no injuries have been reported – but the company said if you have one of the recalled swings, you should stop using it right away.

The company said it has received two reports of the swings falling because a seat peg came out.

The cradle swings were sold from November 2015 through March 2016 for about $170.

If you own one of these products, you are urged to contact Fisher-Price for revised assembly instructions.
