July 31, 2012—Liberty Mountain recalled Vaude’s Kenta child carrier, because side strap’s seam can unravel and cause the strap to separate, which would pose a fall hazard to the child who is in the carrier.
This recall involves backpack-style child carriers that were 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, brown and red. They were designed for children who weigh up to 31 pounds.
The recalled product was sold at camping stores nationwide from January 2010 through May 2012. Vaude received two reports of the side strap separating. No injuries were reported. Consumers should stop using the recalled child carriers and return the product to an authorized Vaude dealer for a replacement. Consumers may contact Liberty Mountain to locate an authorized Vaude dealer.
