Tike Tech, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), has issued a voluntary recall of Jogging Strollers due to a strangulation hazard.
The spacing between the grab bar and the seat bottom on the strollers allows an infant’s body, but not head, to slide through, which can possibly strangle or choke an infant.
To date, there have been on reports of injury associated with this recall.
