On December 19, 2013, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall of the Playtex Hip Hammock because in some carriers the buckles on the straps are prone to breaking which poses a fall hazard to the infant in the carrier. To date, there have been 87 reports of the buckles cracking or breaking with some injuries reported. This popular baby carrier was sold at a number of national retailers including Walmart, Target, Amazon and Burlington Coat Factory.
