Kolcraft Enterprises Inc., of Chicago, Illinois, just issued a recall for tandem strollers for choking hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced.

About 5,600 Contours Options’ LT Tandem Strollers have been recalled. The defective strollers were manufactured in China; imported by Kolcraft Enterprises Inc., of Chicago, Illinois; and sold at Burlington Coat Factory and juvenile product specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Target.com, and other online retailers between February 2012 and July 2012. The tandem strollers sold for about $250.

The tandem strollers’ front wheel assembly can break, posing a fall hazard to the child in the stroller. Also, for strollers manufactured in January and February 2012, the nuts that hold the stroller’s basket support screws in place can detach. These detached nuts can pose a choking hazard to young children. To date, Kolcraft has received six reports of front caster wheels breaking and two reports of the basket’s support screws and nuts detaching. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves all Contours Options LT tandem strollers with model number ZT012. The model number and date of manufacture are printed on a label that is located on the rear leg of the stroller. The dual-seat strollers are constructed with one mesh basket beneath both seats and were sold in two color schemes: Black with red canopies and accents and gray with yellow canopies and accents. The words “Options LT” are printed on a bar along the side of the stroller.

The firm advises consumers to immediately stop using the recalled tandem strollers and contact the company to receive free replacement wheels. Consumers with strollers manufactured in January and February 2012 will also receive replacement nuts for the basket support screws. Kolcraft can be reached, toll-free, at 1.800.453.7673, between 8:00 a.m. and 6:45 p.m., Eastern Time (ET), Monday through Thursday; from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., ET, Friday; or at the firm’s web site at www.kolcraft.com.
