The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with phil&teds, today announced a voluntary recall of about 387 phil&teds Travel System infant car seat adaptors(265 in the U.S. and 122 in Canada) for strollers because the plastic adaptors used to connect an infant car seat to a stroller can crack, become unstable and break during use, posing a fall hazard to infants.
phil&teds has received two reports of the adaptors crack and breaking when stored in freezing weather conditions.
This recall involves phil&teds Travel System 26 (TS26) adaptors used to attach infant car seats to the following phil&teds stroller models, the Classic, Dot, Explorer, Hammerhead, Navigator, S3 and S4. Compatible car seats include the Maxi Cosi Cabriofix, Maxi Cosi Mico, Maxi Cosi Pebble and Cybex Anton. The adaptors are two pieces of black plastic, one for the left side and one for the right side, that connect the stroller to the car seat. “TS26,” “philandteds,” “L” for left, “R” for right and UPC “9 420015 7 4004” are printed on the adaptors.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled adaptor and contact phil&teds toll-free at (855) 652-9019 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday or online at www.philandteds.com and click on “Support,” then “Upgrades and Recalls” for more information on how to receive free replacement adaptors.
