Wednesday: Mutsy strollers recalled for strangulation risk

Thu, Feb 7, 2013 

Mutsy has announced a recall of about 340 of its EVO strollers in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The opening between the stroller's grab bar and seat bottom can allow a baby’s body to slip through and become trapped at the neck. This poses a strangulation risk if the child isn't properly harnessed. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The strollers have black or silver metal frames with brown, navy blue, black, or white seats. Strollers made between February 2012 and November 2012 with the following model numbers are included in this recall: MT12-03, MT12-11, MT12-14, MT12-31, MT12-34, MT12-37, MT12-39, MT12-42, MT12-43, and MT12-48. A white sticker with the model number and date of manufacture can be found on the underside of the stroller seat. "EVO" is printed on the back frame of the stroller.

The strollers were sold at juvenile product stores nationwide and on websites including Amazon between April 2012 and December 2012 for about $400. They were made in China.
