Jane is recalling more than 800 strollers due to a violation of the Federal Stroller and Carriage Safety Standard.
The CPSC said the strollers violate the standard because an infant can pass through the opening between the stroller and the armrest and the seat bottom. If this were to happen, the infant’s head and neck could become entrapped by the armrest, posing an entrapment and strangulation hazard.
There have been no injuries reported in connection with the strollers.
The strollers were sold at Albee baby, Baby World, Kidsland, Toys R Us, Dainty Baby, USA Baby and other stores nationwide for less than $450.
Consumers should immediately stop using the strollers and contact Jane for a free repair, which will replace the armrest. The CPSC said consumers can continue using the strollers if they remove the armrest and harness the child properly until they receive the replacement armrest.
Anyone with questions on the recall can contact Jane at 844-200-7971 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET Monday through Thursday, email email@example.com or online through the “MUUM USA MODEL” page.
