Feb. 7, 2020 -- Infantino is recalling about 14,000 baby carriers because the buckles could break, causing a child to fall out.

The carriers were sold in stores nationwide -- including Target and online at Amazon.com -- from November through December 2019, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The carriers are all backpack-style, where the baby is secured to the wearer’s torso or back.

Infantino says the recall includes only infant and toddler carriers with the following lot codes:

  • Go Forward 4-in-1 Evolved Ergonomic Carrier (lot code # 2018 0619)
  • Go Forward 4-in-1 Evolved Ergonomic Carrier (lot code # 2018 0719)
  • Flip Front2back Carrier (lot code # 2018 0719)
  • Up Close Newborn Carrier (lot code # 2018 0719)

The product name and lot code can be found on a label sewn inside the carriers.

No injuries have been reported. Anyone who bought the recalled carriers should stop using them immediately and contact Infantino to learn how to receive a free replacement.

Customers can reach Infantino at 800-840-4916 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. PT, Monday through Friday; via email at [email protected]; or online at www.infantino.com (click on Recalls for more information).
