VIRGINIA (WIFR) -- Around 4,000 baby carries are being recalled due to a possible faulty waist buckle which can pose a fall hazard to children.
The Twin Go Original Carrier is an infant carrier designed to carry one or two babies against the caregiver's body at the waist. The company has received 13 reports of buckles breaking worldwide, with ten reported in the United States.
The carriers were sold at boutique stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and TwinGoCarrier.com from December 2014 through May 2016 for about $215. “Twin Go” is printed on a label located on the front of the carrier and an 11-digit batch number is printed on a label sewn to the waistband. Batch numbers included in this recall: 23014024003, 01515026003, and 21615019001. They were sold in fabric that is black on the outside and blue or orange on the inside.
