The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Mamas & Papas Ltd, of UK, has announced a voluntary recall of about 3,000 Mamas & Papas Armadillo Flip Strollers because a loose latch on the stroller can cause the seat to tip back unexpectedly when infant is in the parent-facing position, posing a fall hazard to infants.
There have been 10 reports of seats tipping back. No injuries have been reported.

The strollers come in various colors including black, teal and navy and weigh about 22 pounds. Recalled items can be identified by their lot number, which is the month and year of manufacture.
