Playtex recalls Hip Hammock Infant Carriers
Playtex is recalling the Hip Hammock Infant Carrier over concerns of buckles breaking and cracking. There have been two reports of injuries. One of the injured infants required emergency room treatment.
The Playtex Hip Hammock is an infant carrier designed to strap the baby against the caregiver's body at the hip. It is made of a soft, quilted fabric and intended for babies that are from 15 to 35 pounds. The child seat is attached with straps that wrap around the carrier's hips and shoulder. "Playtex Hip Hammock" is printed on a label sewn into the front of the carrier.
All model numbers are being recalled. Model numbers 05300, 05301, 05302, 05306, 05307 and 05308 are sewn into the inside panel below the instructions for use. They come in basic and deluxe styles. The hip hammock's fabric is suede or ultra-suede in black or navy colors on the outside, and the inside lining is black, black and white check or burgundy.
Consumers should stop using the carrier and contact Playtex for instructions on how to return the product for a full refund.
