The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of 223,000 popular strollers following the death of an infant eight years ago and the near strangulation of another in 2006.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Peg Perego is recalling hundreds of thousands of strollers because children can become trapped and strangled between trays on them. One death has already been reported.
Peg Perego USA Inc. said Tuesday that a six-month-old died of strangulation in a stroller in 2004, while a seven-month-old was nearly strangled in 2006. The company is recalling approximately 223,000 strollers, which include Venezia and Pliko-P3 strollers made between January 2004 and September 2007.
Only strollers with a child tray and one cup holder are part of the recall.
Separately, Kolcraft Enterprises Inc. is recalling some strollers due to potential falling and choking hazards.
Kolcraft is recalling about 5,600 of the Contours Options LT tandem strollers sold between February and July. However, no injuries have been reported.
