Zooper Strollers Are Recalled Due To Strangulation Hazards
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Lan Enterprises announced a voluntary recall today involving their Zooper Strollers. About 2,300 of these strollers have been recalled due to the possibility of the opening between the armrest bar/snack tray and seat bottom of the stroller can allow an infant’s body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck, posing a strangulation hazard to young children when a child is not harnessed.
So far no injuries have been reported. The recall involves all Zooper strollers sold with the optional use snack tray and armrest bar. The four models listed below were manufactured between February 2009 and June 2010 Juvenile product and mass merchandise stores nationwide and online retailers, including at Amazon.com, Costco.com and Dmartstores.com from May 2009 to May 2011 for between $200 and $800.
