Choking risk prompts recall of UPPAbaby strollers

Posted on July 24, 2015 9:15 am under Defective Child Care Products

UPPAbaby is recalling UPPAbaby 2015 CRUZ and 2015 VISTA strollers and 2015 RumbleSeats over fears that a baby could bite off a piece of the bumper bar’s foam covering, resulting in a risk of choking, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported on Thursday, July 23.

The 2015 CRUZ strollers have a black fabric toddler seat and an aluminum alloy grey or black frame. The 2015 VISTA strollers, on the other hand, have grey or black aluminum frames that can hold up to three children. RumbleSeats are seat attachments that can be placed into the stroller’s frame. These seats allow the child to ride in the stroller facing forward, backward, or reclined. Serial numbers of the affected products are detailed on the CPSC website.

To date, the company has received 22 reports of babies biting off a piece of the foam covering. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported.
