What’s the Problem with the Recalled Strollers?

This action affects Ergobaby model numbers METROUS1, METROUS2, and METROUS4 Compact City Strollers, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) [1].

“The button on some buckles that release the harness can break and detach when pressed by the user while the child is in the baby stroller, making the stroller frame difficult to release, and posing a choking hazard according to the CPSC federal safety standard,” CPSC said. “The firm has received 15 consumer reports of the button on the buckle that releases the harness breaking and detaching when pressed by the user, making it difficult to release the buckle.”

Affected models come with a harness that has a black release button in the middle of the buckle. The model name is located on the inside of the frame, above the right-side rear wheel. The strollers have a black, gray, or teal blue canopy and the words “Ergo Baby” printed on the front bottom of the product.

Affected products were sold online from July 2018 through September 2019 for about $300. If you purchased a stroller that is affected by this mandatory recall, you should immediately stop using it and contact Ergobaby for instructions and a free repair kit or free replacement. The recall date of these safety notifications was May 26, 2021.

Other Stroller Recalls by the Consumer Products Safety Commission

  • Thule Stroller Recall: August 12, 2020 – Thule Group recalled about 4,000 Thule Sleek strollers and car seats over concerns that the handlebar can detach, posing an injury hazard to children.
  • Belecoo Stroller Recall: July 8, 2020 – A Better You! recalled about 750 Belecoo 535-S Strollers which may be defectively designed in a way which could cause a child’s head to become trapped, posing a strangulation hazard. The recalled products violate the federal Carriages standard because a child’s torso could pass through the opening between the activity tray and the seat bottom and his/her head can become entrapped, CPSC said. Additionally, the location of the crotch restraint creates large leg openings between the seat bottom and the restraint, and it could become detached, posing a fall hazard injuries to children.
  • Costway Stroller Recall: Jun 29, 2020 – Costway Inc. recalled about 16,000 baby strollers for a potential defect which could cause a child’s head to become entrapped between the activity tray and the seat bottom, posing serious entrapment and strangulation hazards.

  • Baby Trend Stroller Recall: January 20, 2020 – Baby Trend Inc. recalled about 2,000 Tango Mini Strollers over a potential defect that can cause the stroller’s joints to “release and collapse” under pressure, which poses a serious head injury risk to children.
