NEW YORK – Safety 1st is recalling some 25,800 strollers because babies inside the carriers are at risk of falling out, the manufacturer said this week.
The Step and Go Travel Systems sold under the Safety 1st brand are designed to open by stepping on a pedal and came with an OnBoard 35 infant car seat, the company said.
The recall was initiated when it was learned the stroller’s tray-folding mechanism can partially disengage on one side when the car seat is attached to the stroller, posing a fall hazard, the company said.
So far, Safety 1st has received 30 reports of the stroller’s front tray coming undone on one side. No injuries have been reported, the company said.
About 20,000 of the recalled strollers were sold in the U.S. Another 5,800 were sold in Canada.
“Safety 1st” is imprinted on the front of the stroller tray and model No. TR314 is printed on a white label on the back of the stroller seat.
They were sold at Babies R Us and other retailers nationwide as well as online at Amazon.com, BabiesRUs.com, and Walmart.com, from May 2015 through June 2016. They cost between $250 and $300.
Anyone who has the recalled stroller is urged to stop using it immediately and call Safety 1st
