The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced that Aria child is recalling more than 29,000 strollers due to laceration and fall hazards.
The recall is limited to Aria Child’s gb Qbit lightweight stroller for children weighing up to 50 pounds. CPSC says that the gap in the stroller can pinch a caregiver’s hand, which may cause lacerations when folding or unfolding the stroller. It also has the possibility to fold unexpectedly, posing safety hazards to children.
The strollers have four sets of two wheels that can be used as a travel system. They were sold at Babies R US and various online platforms between May 2015 and November this year.
Consumers are urged to stop using the stroller and return it to the place of purchase for a free replacement. To date, the company has received at least five reports from consumers who were pinched by the stroller hinge and 71 reports of the stroller suddenly folding during use.
