Strollers Recalled After California Toddler's Death

Stroller manufacturer Peg Perego recently announced a recall of over 220,000 strollers after reports that children can suffer strangulation injuries due to a design defect.

The recall follows the death of a California toddler who died after becoming trapped between the bottom of the stroller seat and the stroller's tray.

The recalled strollers were sold between 2004 and 2007 and do not meet industry standards regarding the safe space between the seat and the stroller tray. Strollers are now designed with wider openings between the trays and the seats in order to prevent such strangulation injuries.

The defective strollers were sold under the names Pliko-P3 and Venezia.

Pliko-P3 strollers that are recalled have model numbers that begin with:

  • IPFR28US34
  • IPPF28NA32
  • IPFT28NA63
  • IPPF28NA57
  • IPFT28NA64
  • IPPF28NA65
  • IPP328MU10
  • IPPF28NA66
  • IPP328MU09
  • IPPF28NA67
  • IPP328US09
  • IPPF28NA68
  • IPP328US10
  • IPPO28US32
  • IPP329US10
  • IPPO28US34
  • IPPA28US32
  • IPPO28US62
  • IPPA28US33
  • IPPO28US69
  • IPPA28US34
  • IPPO28US70
  • IPPD28NA34
  • IPPO28US71

Venezia strollers that are recalled have model numbers that begin with:

  • IPVA13MU09
  • IPVA13MU10
  • IPVA13US09
  • IPVA13US10
  • IPVA13US32
  • IPVA13US34
  • IPVC13NA32
  • IPVC13NA34

The strollers were sold at major retailers including Buy Baby and Babies R Us. Parents are advised to stop using the strollers and to request a free repair kit from the manufacturer. Parents whose children were injured by the strollers should contact an experienced product liability attorney.
