Osprey is a Backpacking/Hiking gear manufacturer based in Cortez, Colorado. Their products range from backpacks to duffel bags and suitcases, even baby wearing gear. These specially designed backpacks can allow adventurous parents the opportunity to share the great outdoors with their children. Hiking is an exciting outdoor activity, that, when introduced to your children, can help them promote a healthy lifestyle and also give the parents a chance to “cut the cord” and experience life away from the ever-encroaching presence of technology in our daily lives.
Creating a bag of this nature presents several unique challenges, first and foremost of which should be child safety. The Osprey company recently issued a voluntary recall on their Poco, Poco Plus, and Poco Premium child carriers manufactured for sale between January, 2012 through December, 2014 due to concerns and risk of a fall hazard through the leg openings of the carrier.
Detailed Recall Information
These Poco backpacks were released in three colors: “Romper Red,” “Koala Grey,” and “Bouncing Blue.” They have a gray padded child’s seat inside and were made with metal frame construction.
The production date is stamped on a black label on the inside of the large lower compartment on the back of the carrier.
