California-based Beco Baby Carrier Inc. is recalling about 2,000 of its baby carriers due to a strap problem that could result in the baby being dropped.
The buckles on the shoulder straps of the Beco Baby Butterfly Carriers can unexpectedly release tension, causing the strap to slip through, the company said. Beco has received eight reports of faulty straps, but no injuries.
The recalled carriers have a black label with a green "b" logo on the left side and a butterfly on the right side. Carrier styles included in the recall are: Mia, Pony Express, Carnival, Addison, Ethan, Sophia, Cameron, Ava and Joshua.
The carriers were manufactured in the United States and Dominican Republic and sold across the U.S. and online from January to February 2008 for about $140.
Consumers should immediately stop using the carriers and contact the company for instructions to return the product for repair. The company can be reached at 1-888-943-8232.
