No injuries have been reported to the company or the safety agency. The products were sold from September 2008 to July 2009 at baby product retailers and merchants nationwide, as well as online. The Babysitter Balance sold for about $170 and the Babysitter Balance Air for about $190. Information: (866) 424-0200 or www.babyswede.com.
