August 25, 2016 — Dorel Juvenile has issued a recall for nearly 26,000 strollers due to a fall hazard.
The recall involves Safety 1st Step-and-Go Travel Systems, which are used with the OnBoard 35 infant car seat. The stroller has a “step-to-open” design that opens by stepping on a pedal.
The problem is that when an infant carrier is attached to the stroller, the tray-folding mechanism can partly open on one side. The tray supports the infant carrier. If it opens, an infant could fall out.
There have been 30 reports of the front tray disengaging. No injuries have been reported to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CSPC).
Model number TR314 is printed on a white label on the back of the stroller seat.
The manufacturer is providing customers a free repair kit — visit http://safetynotice.djgusa.com/step_and_go/, and recommends in the meantime:
“Stop using the stroller with the infant carrier immediately until the repair kit has been assembled to your product.”
About 20,000 were sold in the United States, and another 5,800 in Canada. They were available at retailers like Babies R Us, Amazon.com, babiesrus.com and Walmart.com from May 2015 through June 2016 for between $250 and $300.
