870 phil&teds dash v5 strollers have been recalled due to a faulty hinge that poses a risk of injury to consumers.
About the dash v5 Recall
According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), when opening and closing the dash v5 buggy-style stroller, the hinge used to fold the stroller can become damaged.
This poses a pinch hazard to the consumer. While no injuries have been reported, the firm received one report of the stroller hinge joint separating.
