Another Stroller Recall! Jogging Strollers From Tike Tech Due To Strangulation Hazard
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Tike Tech announced a voluntary recall of 800 Tike Tech Single City X3 and X3 Sport Jogging Strollers, that were sold from October 2009 through February 2010 for about $300.
Although no incidents or injuries have been reported, the recall is being issued as the opening between the grab bar and seat bottom of the stroller can allow an infant’s body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck by the grab bar, posing a strangulation hazard to young children when a child is not harnessed.
The recall involves the grab bar on Tike Tech Single City X3 and X3 Sport strollers. “Tike Tech” is printed on the footrest and on the back of the stroller on the left and right sides. The ID codes are located on the interior left side frame.
The following ID codes are included in this recall:
Consumers should immediately remove the grab bar from the stroller and contact Tike Tech to receive a free replacement grab bar.
