    The TwinGo baby carrier is being recalled because the waist buckle can break, posing a fall hazard for children in the carrier.

    TwinGo has issued a nationwide recall for an infant carrier because of a faulty waist buckle, posing a fall hazard for the babies.

    The TwinGo Original Baby Carrier is designed to hold one or two infants against the caregivers bodies.

    Ten reports of buckles breaking on the carriers have been filed with TwinGo in the United States, along with two in the United Kingdom and one in Canada. No injuries have been reported, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

    The baby carriers were sold for roughly $215 at boutique stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and TwinGoCarrier.com from December 2014 through May 2016.

    The carriers sold had black fabric on the outside and were blue or orange on the inside. An 11-digit number can be found on a label in the waistband. Affected batch numbers include 3014024003, 01515026003 and 21615019001.

    The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends consumers immediately cease using the carriers. Consumers can contact TwinGo for a free repair kit and they will be issued a replacement buckle with instructions.
