  1. We are new to Beco and just wondering if this issue has been addressed. Has there been any recall with the butterfly 2??

  2. Yes, the recall was put out early in 2008 and about 90-95% of carriers were returned and retrofitted. The recall only applied to the original Butterfly. There is no recall for the Butterfly 2. Thanks!

  3. Was the "Sara" design included if it's a Beco Butterfly 1?

  4. was the Allison design recalled as well?
