stroller, child, safety, accident, Many parents are often unaware of risks associated with recalled products they use regularly. Because many of these products may lead to accidents and injuries, we believe parents in the Washington area should not ignore whenever their children are being exposed to risks due to equipment failure and other issues that may lead to safety risks. Especially if these risks are tied to strollers and car safety seats.

The most recent recall campaign tied to children products was launched by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. The announcement indicates that certain strollers used with car safety seats are being recalled after at least 30 incidents were tied to the items.

According to the official report, the impacted items were recalled by Safety 1st. The company reports that all Step and Go Travel Systems manufactured by Dorel Juvenile with the model number TR314 have been recalled. Since these items come with tray folding mechanisms that could partially disengage on one side while an infant car seat is attached to the stroller, the infant may and up falling as a result.

The company has stated that at least 30 incidents of front stroller trays disengaging were registered, but none of the incidents led to an injury.

Nevertheless, we urge consumers with the recalled products to act promptly. Since children could be exposed to injuries in case these products fail, stop using the recalled strollers with the OnBoard 35 infant car seats and contact Safety 1st or a free repair kit.

Recalled units were sold nationwide between May 2015 and June 2016. If you have any questions or concerns, click here for more details on this recall and how to ensure your child is safe.
