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.
