14,000 infant carriers sold at Target, Amazon recalled due to fall hazard

Approximately 14,000 infant and toddler carriers are being recalled because the buckles can break, posing a possible fall hazard for the child, officials said.

The Infantino Go Forward 4-in-1 Evolved Ergonomic, Flip Front2back and Up Close Newborn infant carriers are under the recall, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

They were sold at Target and other stores nationwide, as well as on Amazon, from November to December 2019 for between $30 and $50.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said no injuries have been reported. 

 The front facing infant carriers are cotton with a front padded pouch, and the carriers have a black body and black straps or a gray body and black straps. 

Only Infantino carriers with the following four lot codes are included in the recall. Both the product name and lot code can be found on a label sewn into the inside of the carriers.

Go Forward 4-in-1 Evolved Ergonomic Carrier

  • Lot codes: 2018 0619 and 2018 0719

Flip Front2back Carrier

  • Lot code: 2018 0719

Up Close Newborn Carrier

  • Lot code: 2018 0719

Consumers were urged to immediately stop using the carriers and contact Infantino for instructions on how to receive a free replacement. 

Infantino can be reached at 800-840-4916 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, by email at or online and click on “Recalls” for more information.

ANYTHING with a stressed buckle or retainer made of plastic extrusions or molded parts should be suspect due to embrittlement (crystallization) of mixed, especially recycled,  plastics under any number of not too unusual events.  Virgin plastics are not too much of a problem but recycle is wildly unpredictable in mixtures.

I know nothing of the subject but in my tiny mind I too would not trust reycled parts, and for something as important as carying a baby, I think I would be  paranoid about using such a device for that reason.

Careful!  I did not say recycled parts, I said recycled plastics as source material for fabrication.  A LOT of low tensile or utility plastics out there are indeed made of scrap/recycled raw materials with really skanky provenance or content understanding.  Well conceived recycled source products are just fine, consider most metals, easily tested and content determined, plastics are iffy as there is no really good way to predict how a batch will turn out after reformed or reconfigured.

Ooops my bad, I stand corrected.
