Osprey has recalled 31,000 child carriers because of a risk the child can fall out during use.

Osprey has announced a recall for 31,000 child backpack carriers.

Some carriers have a cut in the plastic buckle on the shoulder strap, posing risks to children as they can potentially fall out of the carrier.

No accidents or injuries have been reported, according to Osprey.

The recall involves the Poco AG, Poco AG Plus and Poco AG Premium models sold between January and May 2016.

Osprey asked consumers to immediately inspect the buckles on their carriers. If one or both of the buckles is cut, stop using the carrier and contact Osprey for information for a product replacement or a full refund.

Closely examine straps to make sure buckles aren't cut.

Closely examine straps to make sure buckles aren't cut.

If neither of the plastic buckles is cut, it's safe to continue using the carriers.

For further instructions, visit Osprey’s website for its inspection and remedy letter.

Osprey can be contacted by phone at 800-303-1350 or by email at pocosupport@ospreypacks.com.
