By Colleen Kave, J.D.

Gold Inc., doing business as Goldbug Inc., of Denver, Colorado, has recalled around 22,000 Eddie Bauer fabric infant carriers because the buckles on the infant carriers can break, posing a fall hazard to children (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 19-010, October 16, 2018).

Incidents and injuries. The firm is aware of eight reported incidents of broken buckles. No injuries have been reported.

Product description. This recall involves Gold Inc.’s Eddie Bauer fabric infant carriers. They are worn by the parent or caregiver with the baby strapped into the front.
