Product Hazards – Carriers

 

 

There have been at least 9,000 carrier related injuries among children under the age of 5 since 2016. At least 24 deaths have been associated with infant carriers between the years 2012-2014, with an average of 8 deaths annually. In 2015, the CPSC issued a final rule for Frame Child Carriers, which established a mandatory safety standard that complies to the Danny Keysar Child Product Safety Notification Act (section 104 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act).

The deaths happened when . . .

  • Infants became entangled in restraining straps
  • Carrier seats toppled over on soft surfaces (i.e., beds)
  • Unrestrained children fell from the carrier to the floor
  • Carrier handles broke or were defective

Most hard handled carriers are certified as child restraint systems for cars. But if not, do not use one in a car.
