A December 20 article of the CPSC revealed that approximately 29,400 infant strollers sold in the U.S. are under recall by a Massachusetts-based company due to complaints that they may cause harm to intended users.
The “Qbit strollers” imported by Aria Child Inc., may cause personal injuries to the caregiver and the infant occupying the stroller. According to the recall, at least five stroller models of Qbit have a space on the side hinge that could cause laceration hazards. The strollers could also fail during use, which may result in babies suffering fall injuries if the stroller unexpectedly collapses. Aria Child received 71 reports of malfunctioning strollers resulting in 12 babies sustaining injuries and five caregivers getting injured by the side hinge. The importer is expected to address the issue by replacing the potentially faulty strollers for free.
