TwinGo Recalls Baby Carriers Due to Fall Hazard

Jennifer Jussell7 months ago

TwinGo Brand recently issued a worldwide recall of their “TwinGo Original” baby carriers due to an issue with the waist buckle breaking which can result in a fall hazard to children in the carrier. TwinGo is now offering a free repair kit for all affected consumers. 

About the Baby Carrier Recall 

TwinGo issued a recall of about 4,000 of their original carriers after receiving 13 reports of buckles breaking worldwide, including 10 in the U.S., 1 in Canada, and 2 in the U.K., according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Fortunately, no injuries have been reported, but the broken buckles pose a serious fall risk to the children in the carriers. 

Consumers are encouraged to stop using the carrier immediately and contact TwinGo for a free repair kit. A free replacement buckle will be provided, with instructions for its use.

A video giving instructions for the repair is also available at http://twingocarrier.com/pages/repairkit
