USA- Edition.cnn.com writes that Baby Trend recalled four models of strollers found to create a risk of falling over. The company released information regarding the recall last week. The hinge joints on the devices are capable of releasing, causing the stroller to collapse with the child inside. Anyone who purchased one of the recalled models is being asked to stop using the stroller immediately.
The strollers are all Tango Minis in Quartz Pink, Sedona Gray, Jet Black, and Purest Blue. Owners can check their model numbers to determine whether their products are impacted by the recall. Model Numbers ST31D09A, ST31D11A, ST31D10A, and ST31D03A are all listed as being defective. These strollers were sold at Target and on Amazon and cost between $100 and $120.
Consumers can contact the manufacturer and get a full refund or a replacement for their stroller.
Recalls are fairly common, and in many cases, the information does not get to the people who need to know about the defective product. Many items are sold through chains of commerce, and manufacturers may not have in place an effective way to alert retailers of the issue. As such, countless recalled products will remain on store shelves long after the company issues the notice. Additionally, consumers often learn about recalls from the news, but not all products make the news. Consumers may be using recalled products without ever learning of the risks that the product creates.
There are many factors that can lead to defective products. Food, medications, and baby toys can all be impacted by a manufacturing error, contamination, or a design flaw. It is important for consumers to exercise judgment and caution and to understand their rights. Companies are liable when their defective products put people at risk.
