Liberty Mountain, of Salt Lake City, Utah, has recalled its Kenta and Kenta Plus child carriers. The carriers were manufactured by VAUDE Sport GmbH & Company KG, of Germany. The side strap’s seam can unravel and cause the strap to separate, posing a fall hazard to the child in the carrier. VAUDE has received two reports of the side strap separating. No injuries have been reported. This recall involves backpack-style child carriers sold under the Kenta and Kenta Plus model name. “VAUDE” is printed on the back and between the shoulder straps of the carrier. “Kenta” or “Kenta Plus” is printed on the lower back or hip belt of the carrier. The carriers were sold in black, red and brown and were designed for children up to 31 pounds.
The child carriers were sold at outdoor camping and climbing stores nationwide from January 2010 through May 2012 for about $150 for the Kenta and $170 for the Kenta Plus models. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled child carriers and return the product to an authorized VAUDE dealer for a replacement. Consumers can contact Liberty Mountain to locate an authorized VAUDE dealer.
