LÍLLÉbaby, LLC, of Golden, Colorado, has recalled around 6,600 Active Series baby carriers because the sliding chest-clip strap can detach from the shoulder strap, posing a fall hazard to the child in the carrier (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 19-716, November 15, 2018).
Incidents and injuries. The firm has received three reports of the chest straps detaching from the carrier, including one report of a child falling out of the carrier. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled carriers are the Active Series-Pro 6 in 1 (in Space Dye Cobalt and Space Dye Grey) and the Active All Seasons (in Slate). Each carrier has a yellow-colored tag on the front neck support, outside of the carrier, and on the back chest-clip pad, both of which have "LÍLLÉ" printed in black lettering and "baby" printed in white lettering on the label.
