BABY TREND STROLLER RECALL: Four models of Tango Mini Strollers by Baby Trend have been recalled as of January 16, 2020. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission cites “the stroller’s hinge joints can release and collapse under pressure, posing a fall hazard to children in the stroller” as the reason behind the recall.
The alert from Baby Trend: “Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Baby Trend for a replacement or full refund.”
Baby Trend released the following statement: “At Baby Trend, safety is our #1 priority and we design, engineer, and test all our products with that in mind. As part of our rigorous process, we recently identified a potential safety issue. Since we strongly stand by our safety priority, we have decided to voluntarily recall certain models of the Tango Mini Strollers. The recalled models, under excessive pressure, both hinge joints could release, allowing the stroller to collapse and pose a fall hazard to children. Most importantly, Baby Trend has received NO reports of injuries.”
The strollers were sold through Target and Amazon between October and November of 2019.
Further details regarding the recalled models – each with its own model number and uniquely colored bonnet top — were listed as:
- Quartz Pink (Model Number ST31D09A)
- Sedona Gray (Model Number ST31D10A)
- Jet Black (Model Number ST31D11A)
- Purest Blue (Model Number ST31D03A).
To locate model numbers, consumers should look at the white sticker with black print on the back of one of the stroller’s legs.
The retail price of the strollers were between $100 and $120,
