Eddie Bauer infant carriers have been recalled due to a fall risk. The carriers were sold at Target stores from December 2017- August 2018.
Gold Inc., the manufacturer of the Eddie Bauer infant carriers, has recalled 22,000 carriers. The front buckles can break, causing a fall hazard for the child.
So far, the manufacturer is aware of eight incidents in which the buckles broke on the infant carriers. No injuries have been reported at this time.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) urges anyone who purchased the recalled infant carriers to stop using them and return them for a full refund or a new carrier. Consumers should contact Gold Inc. to verify their carrier has been recalled. After verification, the manufacturer will send a replacement carrier or a refund.
