images/Hip Ham Restage Playtex has issued a voluntary recall of its Playtex Hip Hammock infant carriers because the buckles on the waist and shoulder strap may crack or break, posing a potential fall hazard to infants. While we stopped distributing this product in 2010, we are taking this action because the safety of consumers is our top priority.

Caregivers who might be using the product should stop using it immediately and contact Playtex Hip Hammock at 1-800-522-8230 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, or contact us online with questions and for instructions on returning the product for a refund.

All other Playtex brand products remain safe for use as directed.

The recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada.
