About 2,300 strollers have been recalled due to strangulation hazards.
Many styles of the stroller are included in this recall. Image here represents just one.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Lan Enterprises, LLC, of Hillsboro, Oregon, has recalled about 2,300 strollers. The opening between the armrest bar/snack tray and seat bottom of the stroller can allow an infant's body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck, posing a strangulation hazard to young children when a child is not harnessed. When using a stroller, parents are encouraged to always secure children by using the safety harness, and never leave the child unattended. No injuries have been reported.
