Infantino recently recalled several of their infant carriers due to concerns that the carriers’ buckles can break and result in a fall.
On Feb. 6, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the recall of three Infantino carriers: Go Forward 4-in-1 Evolved Ergonomic, Flip Front2back, and Up Close Newborn models.
According to the agency, the buckles on these carriers can break – posing a fall hazard to the carried infant. Luckily, no injuries have been reported with the recalled products. Consumers can report any incidents involving the recalled infant carriers to the CPSC.
The recalled infant carriers are made of cotton with a black or gray body and black straps. Only certain lot codes of the infant carriers are being recalled. The Go Forward 4-in-1 Evolved Ergonomic Carrier in lot codes 2018 0619 and 2018 0719, the Flip Front2back Carrier in lot code 2018 0719, and the Up Close Newborn Carrier in 2018 0719 are included. The product name and lot code can be found on the internal label sewn into the carriers.
Around 14,000 units are included in the recall. The products may have been purchased at Target, other retailers and online on Amazon between November 2019 and December 2019. The products retailed between $30 and $50.
Consumers who purchased the recalled products are eligible for a replacement of the product. In order to receive a replacement, consumers are directed to fill out the return form, cut the waist belt off the product, and mail the return packet to Infantino. Cutting off the waist belt reportedly renders the carriers unusable and provides a way for the company to verify the return and replacement.
Infantino notes that consumers may be able to return their products to the store for a refund, although this will depend on the store’s policies. The company itself is not providing any refunds at this time and is only proceeding with a replacement program.
If consumers opt to replace their product through the recall program, they will receive a new product in the same model or one of equal value which is safe and not included in the recall. Replacements will reportedly arrive between three to four weeks of Infantino receiving a consumer’s return packet.
Individuals who have questions can contact Infantino at 800-840-4916 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or via email at Recall@infantino.com. Infantino’s website is also available for information such as frequently asked questions.
This is not the first time baby products have been recalled this year. At the end of January, the CPSC announced the recall of three inclined baby sleeper products. According to the agency, the products are being recalled due to concerns associated with other similar products.
In other inclined baby sleepers, babies have reportedly rolled onto their stomach or side, which can result in suffocation and death. Although the recalled products have not been associated with fatalities, the items were recalled in order to prevent any injuries.
Consumers who purchased the recalled inclined baby sleepers can contact the manufacturers for a cash refund or voucher.
