CPSC, Hufco-Delaware Co. Announce Recall to Repair Gerry® TrailTech™ Backpack Baby Carriers

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Hufco-Delaware Co., of Miamisburg, Ohio, recalled about 111,000 Gerry® TrailTech™ backpack baby carriers with plastic frames. Small infants can shift to one side, slip through the leg openings of these carriers and fall.

CPSC and Hufco-Delaware have received four reports of infants slipping through the leg openings of these carriers. There were two reports of infants suffering fractured skulls and two reports of infants suffering bumped heads when they fell to the ground.

These Gerry® TrailTech™ backpack baby carriers have black, plastic contoured frames. They were sold in color combinations of slate blue with teal trim, green with black trim, navy blue and purple with green trim, and blue and purple with silver trim. A tag on the outside of the carrier reads "GERRY®." A long tag, originally inside the carrier when sold, reads, "GERRY TRAIL TECH/TRAIL TECH HP." Writing imprinted on the plastic frame reads, "GERRY." The carrier has a removable, washable seat; a storage pouch; a loading stand; and a padded hip belt.

Department and baby products stores nationwide sold these backpack carriers from January 1996 through July 2000 for about $65.

Consumers should stop using these backpack carriers immediately, and call Evenflo, which has taken responsibility for this recall, at (800) 233-5921 for a free repair kit that replaces the seat of the carrier with one that has smaller leg openings. Consumers can also register on-line at www.evenflo.com or www.gerryframecarrier.com
