DETROIT (WWJ) – Mamas & Papas is voluntarily recalling 3,000 baby strollers over problems with a loose latch.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says there have been ten reports of the latch giving way, causing the stroller seat to tip back.
While there have been no injuries reported, there are fears the problem could cause a baby to fall from the stroller.
The recall includes the Armadillo Flip and Armadillo Flip XT made in China and sold at Babies ‘R’ Us, Buy Buy Baby, Amazon.com, Armadillo’s website and other stores from December 2014 through July 2016.
All models are folding, single-occupant infant strollers. The strollers come in various colors including black, teal and navy and weigh about 22 pounds and were priced between $500 and $550 each.
Recalled items can be identified by their lot number, which is the month and year of manufacture. Lot numbers ranges for recalled Armadillo Flip strollers are 00814 through 00416 (August 2014 through April 2016). Lot number ranges for the Flip XT are 01214 through 00416 (December 2014 through April 2016).
The numbers can be found printed on the sewn-in label on the stroller.
Consumers are instructed to stop using the strollers immediately and contact Mamas & Papas for a free repair at 800-309-6312 anytime, or visit this link for specific instructions.
