The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled about 1,200 Ellaroo Ring Sling Baby Carriers, because infants could fall out.
The aluminum rings on the carriers can bend or break, causing the fabric to slip through the rings and infants to be dropped.
Ellaroo is aware of two reports of rings breaking and four of the rings bending, the conmission said. No injuries resulted.
The recalled carriers have the item numbers 2101 and 2102 printed on the outside of the product box and lot numbers 03/07 and 07/04 printed on a label, under the size label, inside the sling.
They were sold at children's product stores and department stores and online, from June 2007 to February 2008.
