Mutsy USA Recalls EVO Strollers Due to Strangulation Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Mutsy USA, today announced a voluntary recall of approximately 340 Mutsy EVO strollers due to strangulation hazard. The opening between the grab bar and seat bottom of the stroller can allow an infant’s body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck, posing a strangulation hazard to young children when a child is not harnessed.

Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

This recall includes EVO strollers manufactured between February 2012 (01.02.12) and November 2012 (30.11.12) with the following model numbers: MT12-03, MT12-11, MT12-14, MT12-31, MT12-34, MT12-37, MT12-39, MT12-42, MT12-43 and MT12-48. The model number and date code can be found underneath the stroller seat on a white sticker.  The strollers have black or silver-colored metal frames with brown, navy blue, black, or white seats.  “EVO” is printed on the lower back frame of the stroller.

Incidents/Injuries: None reported

Remedy: Consumers should stop using the strollers immediately and contact Mutsy USA to receive a free replacement seat unit and grab bar.

    I never understand this type of recall that keeps happening with different stroller brands. If you strap your child in with the safety restraint, which I’m sure the instructions tell you to do at all times when your child is in the stroller, this “hazard” is non-existent. Anything can be dangerous if you don’t follow the instructions. Am I missing something here?
