If you’ve bought a Peg Perego baby stroller with a tray, please check it.
The company has recalled about 223,000 of its strollers after finding that children can become trapped and strangled between the trays on the strollers.
The Fort Wayne, Ind. company said a 6-month-old boy strangled to death in a stroller in 2004, while a 7-month-old girl was nearly strangled in 2006. The company recall includes Venezia and Pliko-P3 strollers made between January 2004 and September 2007. Only strollers with a child tray and one cup holder are part of the recall.
According to the company, the model numbers for the recalled Pliko-P3 stroller include IPFR28US34xxxxxxxx, IPFT28NA63, IPFT28NA64, IPP328MU10, IPP328MU09, IPP328US09, IPP328US10, IPP329US10, IPPA28US32, IPPA28US33, IPPA28US34, IPPD28NA34, IPPF28NA32, IPPF28NA57, IPPF28NA65, IPPF28NA66, IPPF28NA67, IPPF28NA68, IPPO28US32, IPPO28US34, IPPO28US62, IPPO28US69, IPPO28US70, and IPPO28US71.
The model number is printed on a white label on the back of the Pliko P-3’s stroller seat.
