Mutsy EVO Strollers Recalled Due To Strangulation Hazard
Check your Mutsy stroller! A recall was issued today due to a strangulation hazard. 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, posing a strangulation hazard to young children when a child is not harnessed. If you own the EVO model, it is recommended that you stop using it immediately and contact Mutsy USA to receive a free replacement seat unit and grab bar.
This recall includes approximately 340 EVO strollers manufactured between February 2012 (01.02.12) and November 2012 (30.11.12) with the following model numbers: MT12-03, MT12-11, MT12-14, MT12-31, MT12-34, MT12-37, MT12-39, MT12-42, MT12-43 and MT12-48. The model number and date code can be found underneath the stroller seat on a white sticker. The strollers have black or silver-colored metal frames with brown, navy blue, black, or white seats. “EVO” is printed on the lower back frame of the stroller.
The strollers were sold in juvenile product stores nationwide and websites including www.amazon.com between April 2012 and December 2012 for about $400.
