UPPAbaby Recalls 71K Strollers and Seats for Choking Risk

UPPAbaby Recalls 71K Strollers and Seats for Choking Risk

July 24, 2015 — A recall has been issued for 71,000 strollers because the foam bumper bar poses a choking hazard.

The bar goes across the middle of the stroller for the child to hold. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has received 22 reports of “children biting off a piece of the bumper bar foam.” No children have been injured, but they could potentially choke on the foam.

The strollers were sold at BuyBuyBaby, Amazon, and other juvenile product retailers nationwide from December 2014 through July 2015.

Recalled strollers include the following models:

  • 2015 Cruz: Sold for $500, marked with “CRUZ” printed on the handlebars and “UPPAbaby” name and logo on the side of the canopy.
  • 2015 Vista: Sold for $860, marked with “VISTA” printed in white letters on the handlebars, had a colored canopy and grey or black aluminum frames, and could hold one, two, or three children.
  • 2015 RumbleSeat: Sold separately and designed to be attached to the stroller frame, allows the child to ride forward-facing, rear-facing, or reclined.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) has provided a compete list of recalled model numbers on its website.

UPPAbaby asks consumers to immediately stop using the bumper bar and take it off the stroller. The company will provide a free cover for the bumper bar and a warning label. Call (844) 540-8694 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or email contact@uppababy.com.
