What’s the Problem?
According to the CPSC Recall Notice, this action affects Island Wear umbrella strollers with a grab bar and footrest, which were sold in blue and multi rainbow colors.
The location of the restraint system on affected strollers creates a large gap between the restraint and the seat, CPSC said. Babies could slip through the gap and fall.
Additionally, the covering on the grab bar can detach and expose foam, which poses a choking hazard to children. These potential design defects violate the federal Carriages and Strollers Safety standard, according to the CPSC.
The recalled strollers were sold at Paradise Island, Outrageous Outlet, and Grand Resort Wear in Ocean City, Maryland, from April 2019 to October 2019 for about $20.
If you purchased an Umbrella Stroller that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact Island Wear Inc. for a refund. This recall began on June 10, 2020.
