Product Details

Product name Infant carriers/Slings
Description The recalled slings are made of 100-percent cotton fabric or 97 percent cotton/3percent Lycra with two pieces of webbing holding the rings to the fabric. Solid natural color and five prints (Splash, Pink and Black Stripe, Pink and Brown Stripe, Pink Punch and The Hamptons) make up the lots included in the recall. A large white label sewn on the pocket of the slings reads "Zolo." ZoloWear slings should have three rows of stitching securing the webbing and fabric together. Some of the slings in these lots have short webbing, so only one row of stitching holds the webbing in place. 
Problem The stitching that attaches the webbing to the carrier/sling can break,posing a fall hazard to young children. 
Distribution The Web site, individual distributors, and five children's boutiques in California, Hawaii and Texas. 
Company ZoloWear, Inc. - 888-285-0044; Web site -
