WASHINGTON, D.C. --  The Consumer Product and Safety Commission has issued recalls on infant carriers and children's eating utensils.

Playtex recalled their hip hammock infant carriers due to the buckles on the waist and shoulder straps cracking and breaking, which poses a fall hazard to the child.

The company says it has received 87 reports of the buckles cracking or breaking. This includes two reports of injuries, where one infant required emergency room treatment.

Consumers are advised to stop using the carrier immediately and contact Playtex at (800) 522-8230 or online for a full refund.

The carriers were sold at Burlington Coat Factory, Target, Walmart, and other stores nationwide.

Edoche recalled their Cubetensils children's eating utensils due to the utensil's handle detaching, causing a choking hazard.

The company says this affects about 1,100 spoon and fork sets that were sold at major retailers nationwide and online.

They say they have received one report of the utensil's handle detaching and a baby putting it in his/her mouth. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers are advised to immediately take the utensils away from children and contact Edoche at (774) 295-0170 or online for a full refund.
