Aria Child is recalling nearly 30,000 strollers over a laceration and fall hazard.
The recall involves 29,400 of the gb Qbit lightweight stroller for children up to 50 pounds. The strollers have four sets of two wheels, a five-point harnessed restraint system, a full-sized reclining seat, a storage basket, a removable cup holder and a travel storage bag. The strollers can also be used as a travel system with infant carriers.
The strollers involved were sold between March 25, 2015 and March 9, 2016 at Babies R US and other retail stores nationwide and Albeebaby.com, Amazon.com, Dmartstores.com, Medbroad.com and other online retailers for about $180.
There have been five reports of consumers being pinched by the stroller hinge mechanism, resulting in four consumers needing stitches for cuts. In addition, there were 71 reports of the stroller unexpectedly folding during use, resulting in 12 minor bumps or bruises to a child or caregiver and one fractured wrist and elbow to an adult due to a fall.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Aria Child for a free replacement stroller.
