More Than 300,000 Infant Carriers Recalled

December 19, 2013, 10:36 AM by Angela Kennecke

More Than 300,000 Infant Carriers Recalled
NEW YORK -

305,000 Playtex Hip Hammock infant carriers are being recalled because babies can fall out of them.

Playtex has received 87 reports of the buckles cracking or breaking, including two reports of injuries, where one infant required emergency room treatment.

Consumers should stop using the carrier and contact Playtex for instructions on how to return the product for a full refund.

The Playtex Hip Hammock is an infant carrier designed to strap the baby against the caregiver’s body at the hip. It is made of a soft, quilted fabric and intended for babies that are from 15 to 35 pounds. The child seat is attached with straps that wrap around the carrier’s hips and shoulder. “Playtex Hip Hammock” is printed on a label sewn into the front of the carrier.

All model numbers are being recalled. They were sold at Burlington Coat Factory, Target, Walmart, juvenile product, baby and discount stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from June 2004 through December 2008 for about $40 for the basic model and $60 for the deluxe model.

For more information call Playtex at (800)522-8230 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. central time Monday through Friday or online.
