Costway recalls baby strollers due to violation of federal stroller and carriage safety standard; fall, entrapment and strangulation hazards

Costway is recalling about 16,000 baby strollers due to violation of federal stroller and carriage safety standard; fall, entrapment and strangulation hazards.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the recalled strollers violate the federal standard for carriages and strollers. A child’s torso can pass through the opening between the activity tray and the seat bottom and his/her head can become entrapped, posing entrapment and strangulation hazards. The location of the crotch restraint creates a large opening between the seat bottom and the restraint, posing a fall hazard to children.

This recall involves three models of double strollers. A tag on the stroller seat reads:

MADE FOR GOPLUS CORP 11250 POPLAR AVE. FONTANA, CA 92337.
