RECALL: Optave Action Baby Carriers Due to Fall Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Optave, today announced the voluntary recall of about 250 Action Baby Carriers because the baby carrier’s chest strap can detach from the shoulder straps, posing a fall hazard to the baby.

The company has received two reports of the chest strap detaching from the shoulder straps on the baby carrier. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled carriers were sold under the “Action Baby Carrier” brand name. The carriers are sold in various colors and patterns: blue, brown, green, “so square”, “the larrisa” and “spring breeze.”

Consumers should immediately stop using the carrier in the positions that require the use of the chest strap and contact Optave toll-free at (866) 208-0269 (9am – 5pm M – F) or visit the firm’s Web site at
