Health Canada Recalls More Than 5000 Child Strollers from Mississauga-Based Manufacturer
Published August 25, 2016 at 7:39 pm
Health Canada has announced that it is recalling more than 5,000 child strollers due to a safety concern.
The stroller is known as the Step and Go, sold under the Safety 1st brand and distributed by Dorel Juvenile in Mississauga. According to the news release, the stroller tray’s folding mechanism can partially disengage on one side when used with an infant car seat attached to the stroller, which poses a falling hazard.
Although there have been consumer reports of the tray disengaging, Health Canada has not heard of any injuries related to the product, thankfully.
The model numbers of the strollers being recalled are 01451CCYA, 01451CDGI, and 01451CDGJ. The model number can be found on a sewn-in label on the back of the stroller, at the upper side of the backrest.
Health Canada is advising consumers to immediately stop using the recalled stroller with the infant carrier/car seat and contact Dorel Juvenile Canada for a free repair kit.
The strollers were sold from May 2015 to June 2016. Approximately 5,787 units were sold across Canada, with about 20,000 sold in the United States.
