EVO strollers recalled for strangulation hazard
Posted February 7, 2013 4:20 p.m. EST
A baby stroller has been recalled because the product poses a strangulation hazard to children, the U.S. Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
When an infant is not harnessed in the EVO stroller, which is manufactured by Mutsy USA, the child's neck can become caught in the opening between the grab bar and seat bottom, according to the company.
Consumers should stop using the strollers immediately and contact Mutsy USA to receive a free replacement seat unit and grab bar.
There have been no reported injuries.
The recall includes EVO strollers that were manufactured between February 2012 and November 2012 with the following model numbers: MT12-03, MT12-11, MT12-14, MT12-31, MT12-34, MT12-37, MT12-39, MT12-42, MT12-43 and MT12-48. The model number and date code can be found underneath the stroller seat on a white sticker. The strollers have black or silver-colored metal frames with brown, navy blue, black, or white seats. “EVO” is printed on the lower back frame of the stroller.
The strollers were sold at Juvenile product stores nationwide and through websites including www.amazon.com between April 2012 and December 2012 for about $400.
