The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Beco Baby Carrier Inc, today announced a voluntary recall of about 2,000 Beco Baby Butterfly Carriers because the buckles on the carrier shoulder straps can unexpectedly release tension, causing the strap to slip through, posing a fall hazard to the baby.
Beco has received eight reports of the carrier straps slipping through the shoulder buckles. No injuries have been reported.
The recalled infant carriers were sold under brand name “Beco Baby Carrier Butterfly.” The carriers have a black label with a green “b” logo on the left side and a butterfly on the right side. The label is sewn on the outside of the carrier. The following carrier styles are included in the recall: Mia, Pony Express, Carnival, Addison, Ethan, Sophia, Cameron, Ava and Joshua.
Parents are being asked to immediately stop using the carriers and contact Beco Baby Carrier at (888) 943-8232/9-GET-BECO(10 – 4 M-F or visit the firm’s Web site at www.becobabycarrier.com to receive instructions for returning the carriers for repair.
