iCandy Recalls Cherry Strollers Due To Strangulation Hazard
Check your strollers mamas! iCandy and the CPSC have issued a recall for approximately 830 Cherry strollers in Licorice and Fudge due to a strangulation hazard. According to the recall, the opening between the bumper 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.
This recall includes the iCandy Cherry stroller only in the colors Fudge (light-medium brown) and Liquorice (red and black). The iCandy Cherry stroller system has a telescopic folding frame where a seat, bassinet or infant carrier car seat can be placed. The seat unit features three recline positions, adjustable footrest, 5-point safety harness, removable canopy and removable bumper bar. There is a printed white cherry logo on the rear of the seat unit. A label can be found under the basket fabric on the frame tubing that supports the lower basket on the following recalled models:
|Batch No.||Cherry Stroller Color||Serial Number|
Consumers should immediately remove the bumper bar from the strollers and contact iCandy America Inc. to receive a free replacement bumper bar.
Consumers can continue to use the strollers while awaiting the replacement bumper bar.
