RECALL: 800 Tike Tech Jogging Strollers Due to Strangulation Hazard
|The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Tike Tech, today announced a voluntary recall of 800 Tike Tech Single City X3 and X3 Sport Jogging Strollers because 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 by the grab bar, posing a strangulation hazard to young children when a child is not harnessed. When using a stroller, parents and caregivers are encouraged always to secure children by using the safety harness and never to leave them unattended.|
The recall involves the grab bar on Tike Tech Single City X3 and X3 Sport strollers. “Tike Tech” is printed on the footrest and on the back of the stroller on the left and right sides. The ID codes are located on the interior left side frame.
The following ID codes are included in this recall:
Consumers should immediately remove the grab bar from the stroller and contact Tike Tech at (800) 296-4602 between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or email the firm at email@example.com or visit firm’s website at www.tiketech.com to receive a free replacement grab bar.
