The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Mutsy USA Inc., today announced a voluntary recall of about 340 Mutsy EVO strollers because the opening between the grab bar and seat bottom of the stroller can allow an infant’s body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck, posing a strangulation hazard to young children when a child is not harnessed.
This recall includes EVO strollers manufactured between February 2012 (01.02.12) and November 2012 (30.11.12) with the following model numbers: MT12-03, MT12-11, MT12-14, MT12-31, MT12-34, MT12-37, MT12-39, MT12-42, MT12-43 and MT12-48. The model number and date code can be found underneath the stroller seat on a white sticker. The strollers have black or silver-colored metal frames with brown, navy blue, black, or white seats. “EVO” is printed on the lower back frame of the stroller.
Consumers should stop using the strollers immediately and contact Mutsy USA toll-free at (877) 546-9230 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the firm’s website at www.mutsy.com to receive a free replacement seat unit and grab bar.
It is worth noting that the stroller is completely safe if your baby is buckled in.
