Thousands of defective “Qbit strollers” recalled in the US
Over 29,000 strollers sold in the U.S. are being recalled by a Massachusetts retailer due to complaints that caregivers and babies are at high risk of sustaining injuries if the products suddenly malfunction, a December 20 article of CPSC reported.
The recall was issued by Aria Child Inc. on an estimated 29,400 strollers that have a folding side hinge that could cause pinch and laceration injuries to caregivers. Babies, on the other hand, could suffer injuries as well, because the stroller could fail during use. The recalling company and the Consumer Product Safety Commission have been notified of several adults sustaining injuries when using the strollers and requiring stitches, as well as multiple incidents of children suddenly falling from the stroller. Consumers who might have purchased any of the five different colors of strollers were advised not to use the product and to get in touch with Aria Child to receive a free replacement.
