Abstract

In the United States, injuries are the leading cause of death and disability among children aged 1-4 years and the sixth leading cause of death and disability among infants aged less than 1 year. Small children and infants can be injured when left unattended, even in environments that appear safe. Often such injuries and deaths are associated with use of consumer products, including products designed for children aged less than 1 year (i.e., strollers, walkers, car seats, and infant carriers [ICs]). From January 1986 through October 1991, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) received reports of 26 fatalities associated with IC-related injuries. To inform public health and health-care providers about potential risks associated with use of ICs, CDC summarized epidemiologic information and related details regarding these incidents.
