The CPSC, along with The Ergobaby Carrier Inc., of Los Angeles, Calif., has announced a voluntary recall of about 2,800 METROUS1, METROUS2, and METROUS4 Compact City Strollers because the button on some buckles that release the harness can break and detach when pressed by the user while the child is in the stroller, making it difficult to release, and posing a choking hazard to young children.
This recall involves the Ergobaby METROUS1, METROUS2, or METROUS4 Compact City Strollers. The strollers come with a harness that has a black release button in the middle of the buckle.
The model name is located on the inside of the frame, above the right-side rear wheel. The strollers have a black, gray, or teal blue canopy and Ergo Baby printed on the front bottom of the stroller.
Ergobaby has received 15 consumer reports of the button on the buckle that releases the harness breaking and detaching when pressed by the user, making it difficult to release the buckle. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Ergobaby toll-free at 888-416-4888 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, email at Support@Ergobaby.com, or online at www.ergobaby.com and click on “Safety Notifications” at the bottom of the page for more information on how to receive a full free replacement restraint harness with buckle.
