Baby Strollers Recalled- 1 Death Reported
The U.S. CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission), in cooperation with Peg Perego USA Inc., is recalling approximately 223,000 strollers due to risk of entrapment and strangulation.
About the Baby Stroller Recall
There have been two serious incidents of babies getting trapped between the recalled version of the Peg Perego stroller. The first incident occurred in 2004 when a 6-month old baby boy from California died of strangulation after his head was trapped between the seat and the tray of the stroller. Later in 2006, a similar instance happened when a 7-month old baby girl from New York was trapped between the tray and the seat of her Peg Perego stroller, and was nearly strangled.
Children under 12 months old are at more of a risk of becoming trapped in between the seat and the tray of the stroller, because they are smaller and more at risk of getting their head or neck caught in between the tray and the seat of the stroller.

Consumers should stop using the recalled strollers immediately, and contact the firm to receive a free repair kit. Do not contact your local retailers that sell the stroller, because they will not be able to provide a repair kit.
