The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recently announced a recall for the Baby Trend Tango Mini Stroller due to a possible fall hazard.
A statement on Baby Trend’s website said, “At Baby Trend, safety is our #1 priority and we design, engineer, and test all our products with that in mind. As part of our rigorous process, we recently identified a potential safety issue. Since we strongly stand by our safety priority, we have decided to voluntarily recall certain models of the Tango Mini Strollers. The recalled models, under excessive pressure, both hinge joints could release, allowing the stroller to collapse and pose a fall hazard to children.” If you have this stroller, read on for important recall information.
Recalled Product Description: Tango Mini Stroller
The current recall includes Baby Trend Tango Mini Strollers in the color/model number combinations Quartz Pink (Model Number ST31D09A), Sedona Gray (Model Number ST31D10A), Jet Black (Model Number ST31D11A) and Purest Blue (Model Number ST31D03A).
The strollers were sold from October 2019 through November 2019 for $100 to $120 in Target stores, on Target.com and on Amazon.
Why the Strollers Were Recalled
It’s possible for both hinge joints to release and collapse under pressure. This poses a potential fall hazard to a child seated in the stroller. As of now there are no reported injuries due to the recalled product.
How to Tell If Your Child’s Stroller Was Recalled
Look for the model number printed on the white sticker on the stroller’s leg. The model numbers recalled include ST31D09A, ST31D10A, ST31D11A and ST31D03A.
