(NEW YORK) —  The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a nationwide recall for an infant carrier because of a faulty waist buckle, posing a fall hazard to children in the carrier.

TwinGo is recalling about 4,000 “TwinGo Original” baby carriers. The carrier is intended for babies who are from 10 to 45 pounds.

Retailing for $215, the Chinese-made carrier was sold online from December 2014 until this month.

The McLean, Virginia-based firm received 13 reports of buckles breaking worldwide, including 19 in the United States, one in Canada and two in the U.K., according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers are encouraged to stop using the carrier and contact TwinGo for a free repair kit.
