Action Baby Carriers - Product Recall

Filed under: Alerts & Recalls

Optave Inc., of Alpena, Michigan, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling their Action Baby Carriers. The chest strap on the carriers can come loose from the shoulder straps, potentially allowing the baby to fall. Such a "feature" would seem to be counter-productive to the product's intended purpose. Luckily, there have been no injuries reported.

The carriers affected by this recall were sold in various colors and patterns, and were available under the "Action Baby Carrier" brand name in retail stores across the country and on the internet in May and June of this year, for $80 to $90. If you have one of these carriers, do not use it in a position that requires the use of the chest straps. Instead, contact Optave for a free set of replacement straps. For more information, contact Optave Inc. at toll-free (866) 208-0269 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm's Web site.
