Canadian company L’echarpe Porte-bonheaur has recently recalled its Chimparoo Baby Carrier due to a fall hazard. It has been said that the carrier’s side strap can loosen unexpectedly from the buckle, posing a fall risk to the child in the carrier. The company has received one report of a strap loosening unexpectedly from the carrier’s side buckle, though, luckily, no injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Chimparoo brand Trek baby carriers which allow users to carry a baby either facing the carriers stomach, on his/her hip, or on his/her back. The 100% twill fabric carriers were sold in 18 solid, striped and pattern color combinations. The carriers attach to the wearer’s body with adjustable straps made of polypropylene webbing and plastic buckles. “Chimparoo” is printed on the upper right hand corner of the carrier. “Trek” is embroidered on the belt.
