NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada (HC) are warning consumers to stop using the Infantino "SlingRider" pictured below and "Wendy Bellissimo" infant slings following reports of three infant deaths that came with the use of these products.

One million of these infant slings are being recalled in the U.S., and 15,000 are being recalled in Canada. The CPSC cites three reports of deaths that occurred in these slings in 2009; a 7-week-old infant in Philadelphia, Pa.; a 6-day-old infant in Salem, Ore.; and a 3-month-old infant in Cincinnati, Ohio.

CPSC advises consumers to immediately stop using these slings for infants younger than four months old due to a risk of suffocation, and to contact Infantino for a free replacement product.
