The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (U.S. CPSC) has recalled more than 1000 double strollers due to a risk of falling. If you own a Valco Baby stroller, here’s what you need to know.
What product is being recalled?
According to the U.S. CPSC, the Valco Snap Duo Trend Double Strollers have been recalled. The recall was issued on February 16, 2022, and there were approximately 1,290 units impacted by the recall.
The affected model was sold between February and October 2020 and was available to purchase in stores an online. Some retailers included Amazon, PishPosh Baby, and Albee Baby. The product sold for approximately $700.
The recall encompasses all colors of the Valco Snap Duo Trend Double Stroller including denim, night, gray, and charcoal.
“The recalled strollers have an order, model or batch number printed on the label permanently affixed to the strollers’ frame,” the agency recall reads. “Strollers with order numbers 7884, 7885 or 7886 and model numbers N9938, N9939, N9872 or N0001 are included in the recall.”
Why is the Valco Snap Duo Trend Double Stroller being recalled?
The decision to pull the product came after receiving 207 reports of the stroller front wheels either cracking or breaking completely. This poses a potential risk to the child since the stroller tips forward when the break happens.
Thankfully, at this time, there have been no injuries reported.
What to do if your stroller is part of the recall?
Parents who have one of the listed recalled stroller model numbers are asked to stop use of the stroller immediately. Consumers are advised to contact Valco Baby for a free replacement front wheel assembly and instructions to follow on how to replace the parts.
