The side strap's seam can unravel and cause the strap to separate, posing a fall hazard to the child in the carrier. VAUDE has received two reports of the side strap separating. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves about 300 backpack-style child carriers sold under the Kenta and Kenta Plus model name. "VAUDE" is printed on the back and between the shoulder straps of the carrier.

Outdoor camping and climbing stores nationwide from January 2010 through May 2012 for about $150 for the Kenta and $170 for the Kenta Plus models.
