The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced yesterday it would be working with child stroller manufacturer, Mutsy USA, in conducting a voluntary recall of its EVO stroller. According to a press release, the recall is being issued due to a strangulation hazard the unit may cause.
The 340 affected units of the stroller were manufactured between February and November of last year and were sold online and through retailers nationwide. Experts say the space between the grab bar and the seat bottom of the stroller is large enough for an infant or toddler to pass their body through and become trapped. This can pose a strangulation risk if the child is not properly fastened with the harness supplied with the device.
The press release above lists serial numbers of the Defective Product, which can be located on a sticker beneath the seat of the stroller.
Anyone who is in possession of an affected unit has been instructed to stop using it immediately and to contact the manufacturer for a free repair kit.
The law firm of Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy have a team of Ohio Personal Injury Attorneys who are dedicated to helping those who have been injured by defective products and may be able to help if you have suffered an injury while using a product that did not work as it was designed to.

Burned out semi-truck […]
Merging onto a highway or interstate is always a little stressful, even when traffic is light. That’s because you’re required to enter the roadway at a fast enough speed to keep up with other traffic, but you may have only a hundred feet to accelerate and reach that speed. And when traffic is heavy, there […]
When many people think of surgeons committing medical malpractice, they think of mistakes made during major operations like open-heart surgery, joint replacement, and organ transplantation. When surgeons make mistakes during these procedures, patients can develop serious and often fatal complications. However, there’s another type of surgery where major mistakes can happen that can also put […]
MRSA infections are one of the biggest risk factors of hospital stays, especially in people who had surgery or who are recovering from serious injuries and wounds. While they start as skin infections, they can quickly worsen and cause life-threatening infections in tissue, bones, and organs throughout the body. According to a 2020 study published […]
