Baby carriers recalled because infant can fall out

About 14,000 Infantino soft infant and toddler carriers have been recalled because their buckles can break and put children at risk for falling, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says.

The recalled models are Go Forward 4-in-1 Evolved Ergonomic, Flip Front2back, and Up Close Newborn. They were sold at Target and other stores across the United States and online at Amazon.com from November 2019 through December 2019 for between $30 and $50.

No injuries or incidents involving the recalled carriers have been reported, according to CPSC.

It advised consumers to immediately stop using the recalled infant carriers and contact Infantino about how to get a free replacement carrier. Consumers can go to the company's website or call 1-800-840-4916.
