WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), L.L. Bean Inc., of Freeport, Maine, is recalling about 10,000 backpack child carriers, model number AC25. Small children can become entangled in the carrier's harness,which poses a strangulation risk.

L.L. Bean has received 23 reports of children falling out of the harnesses by slipping through a leg opening or toppling out of the top of the carrier. It was reported that 8* of these children received injuries, including head bumps, bruises, abrasions and contusions and four of these children became entangled by the harness straps around their necks.

These forest green L.L. Bean Child Carriers have gray harnesses, and model number AC25, which is written on a tag in the upper left side of the rear storage compartment. These "backpack" carriers have kickstands for loading the child into the carriers. The "L.L. Bean " label is on the back of the carrier.

The L.L. Bean website and catalogs, and L.L. Bean retail stores in Maine, Oregon, New Hampshire and Delaware sold the carriers between January 1997 and October 1998 for about $99.
