About 223,000 strollers were recalled by Peg Perego this week due to a strangulation hazard that claimed the life of a six-month-old boy in 2004.
The recall includes Peg Perego’s Venezia and Pliko-P3 strollers which were manufactured between January 2004 and September 2007 and were sold at various retailers across the nation.
Only strollers with a child trap and one cup holder are a part of the recall. For a detailed list of the model numbers involved in the recall, visit Peg Perego’s website.
According to Peg Perego’s website, strollers with a bumper bar or a tray with two cup holders are not included with this recall.
When the child is not harnessed properly into the stroller, entrapment and strangulation can take place, especially in children younger than a year old.
