Product description

Poco AG
Poco AG Plus
Poco AG Premium

The products can be identified by:
i. The production date code (“PO” or “Purchase Order” Number) is stamped on a black label sewn in the interior of the large bottom pocket in the back of the carrier. The relevant production numbers for the carriers are S16SB03, S16SB04, S16SB05, S16SB06 and S16SB07 (“S” represents the season of the production run: Spring; “16” represents the year of the production run: 2016; “SB” represents the factory, Sambu; and the last two numbers show the number of the production run). There were five production runs in spring 2016: runs 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. Only carriers with production number S16SB05 were imported into Australia.
ii. The model name is printed on the fabric of the lower front panel of the carrier.

A tag that is sewn into the carrier’s lower compartment also shows the model name and serial number (each pack has an individual serial number to allow tracking).

The model name, PO number and serial number also appear on a sticker attached to the Owner’s Manual, which is secured to the backpack at the point of sale.

What are the defects?

Due to a production error, a small number of bars on the tension lock buckles of the lower shoulder straps may have been cut.

What are the hazards?

If the bar has been cut, it may cause the shoulder strap to release on one or both sides of the harness. The released strap could cause the child carrier to fall from the person wearing it, and, as a result, could pose a fall hazard to the child in the carrier.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should immediately inspect the buckles on both straps of the carrier harness to determine if there is a cut in the plastic buckle on one or both straps. Inspection should be carried out in the manner described in the attached checking guide for consumers. If the buckle is cut, consumers should immediately stop using the carrier and contact Outdoor Agencies, Osprey’s Australian Distributor, for a free replacement or full refund. Consumers also may contact Outdoor Agencies to return the carrier for inspection. If the buckle is cut, consumers will receive a replacement or full refund.

Contact Outdoor Agencies on 028717 7308, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. AEST.
