Stroller recall due to entrapment and strangulation hazard - WSFA.com Montgomery Alabama news.

Certain Peg Perego strollers recalled due to entrapment and strangulation hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Peg Perego USA, Inc., has announced the voluntary recall of 223,000 strollers.  The strollers being recalled are the Venezia and Pliko-P3.  Only strollers that have a child tray with one cup holder are part of this recall.  They were sold at Babys R Us, Buy Buy Baby and other retailers nationwide from January 2004 through September 2010.

The strollers pose a risk of entrapment and strangulation, especially to infants younger than 12 months of age, when a child is not harnessed.  An infant can pass through the opening between the stroller tray and seat bottom, but the child's head or neck can become entrapped by the tray, causing risk of strangulation.

A 6-month-old baby boy from Tarzana, Calif. died of strangulation after his head was trapped between the seat and the tray of his Peg Perego stroller in 2004. Another baby, a 7-month-old girl from New York, N.Y., nearly strangled when her head became trapped between the seat and the tray of her stroller in 2006.


The safety recall involves the following Venezia and Pliko-P3 strollers that begin with the following model numbers:

The model number is printed on a white label on the Pliko P-3's stroller seat and on the Venezia stroller's footboard. "Peg Perego" and "Venezia" or "Pliko-P3" are printed on the side of the strollers.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact the firm for a free repair kit. Do not return the stroller to the retailers as they will not be able to provide the repair kit.  CPSC and Peg Perego warn consumers that these strollers may be available on the secondhand market, in thrift stores or at yard sales. Consumers should not buy or sell these recalled strollers until the repair kit is installed.

For additional information, call Peg Perego at (888) 734-6020 anytime or visit the firm's website at www.PegPeregoUSA.com

NOTE: When using a stroller, parents and caregivers are encouraged to always secure children by using the safety harness and never leave them unattended. To learn more about the importance of stroller safety, see CPSC's safety alert: www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/pubs/5096.pdf

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product.  Contact the CPSC at saferproducts.gov to tell them of your experience with the product.
