Eddie Bauer Infant Carrier Recall Due To Risk of Broken Buckle, Fall Hazard

Roughly 22,000 Eddie Bauer infant carriers sold exclusively at Target stores have been recalled, following reports that suggest the buckles may break, causing infants to fall and suffer an injury risk. 

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the Target infant carrier recall on October 16, following at least eight reports involving problems where the restraint buckles broke during use. While no injuries have been reported in relation to the recall to date, this could pose a serious risk for infants while being carried.

The products impacted by the recall are fabric infant carriers designed to be worn by an adult, with the baby strapped into the front. The carriers are equipped with straps and buckles that can be tightened to secure the child in the carrier.

The CPSC warns that reports indicate these buckles are breaking away from the straps during use, while infants are in the carriers. As a result of the risk, customers are being urged to stop using these infant carriers immediately.

According to the manufacturer recall announcement, the recall affects about 22,000 Eddie Bauer First Adventure fabric infant carriers. The carriers are black in color and have “Eddie Bauer” and “First Adventure” printed in gray lettering on the front, outside of the carrier.

The recalled infant carriers were manufactured in China under Woodfield Baby Products. They were imported to the U.S. and sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide and online from December 2017 through August 2018 for about $70.

Customers with the recalled infant carriers should stop using them immediately and contact Gold Inc. at 866-600-7205 or email them at customerservice@goldbuginc.com for information on how to receive replacement parts or a full refund.
