We have some important safety information to tell you about regarding baby strollers. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall of more than 3,000 Zooper Tango Double Strollers. This is a voluntary recall by Lan Enterprises LLC.
The issue with this particular model stems from a problem with the stroller's frame latch situated above the front wheels. The CPSC says this mechanism can fail when the stroller hits an object and basically cause the product to collapse on children. When this occurs, babies can possibly suffer cuts and bruises. Parents and caregivers are urged to stop using the double stroller now and contact the company for a repair kit.
Reports of Injuries
As of this writing, the company has received more than 180 reports of frame latch problems. One particular example involved a baby boy and a toddler who suffered scrapes and bruises when the stroller hit a sidewalk and collapsed.
This latest recall involving strollers involves ones that were made between January 1, 2007 and April 30 and involve model numbers SL808B and SL808F. The strollers were sold at various retail outlets throughout the United States including “Babies R Us”, as well online retailers and sold for about $400. The double strollers were manufactured in China.
