Buying a second hand carrier is a really good way to save some money and to try things that you may not otherwise be able to afford. However, carriers that have been recalled can stay on the market (or hidden away in a box) for a really long time, so please check this list before making your purchase.
This is a list of all the baby carrier recalls posted worldwide. If there are any missing, please send us a note with the necessary information.
