The Baby Carrier Industry Alliance (BCIA) would like members, businesses and consumers alike, to be aware of the knock-off carriers now being sold on various web sales sites. Many of these carriers are available on a regular basis on eBay, where unscrupulous sellers use well-recognized brand names to sell shoddy copies.
Consumers should carefully check the packaging on carriers they buy from unknown retailers, and purchase from reputable sellers when buying a baby carrier. If you are in doubt as to whether a retailer is legitimate, you can check the manufacturer's website.
