Dorel Baby Carriers Recall

On December 18, 2009, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced the recall of 447,000 Dorel baby carriers after the company received 77 reports of the handle coming off. A minimum of three injuries to infants have been reported, including a head injury, bumps and bruises. The problem with the carriers is attributed to the bolts coming loose on either side of the carrying handle, causing children who are not fastened to fall out. The carrier also functions as a car seat and stroller when purchased as a Travel System package, but has only presented a danger when the handle is used. Safety 1st, Cosco, Eddie Bauer and Disney all used the Dorel-manufactured carrier, which was sold nationally between January 2008 and December 2009. Please check your baby carriers and protect your children.
