Baby strollers recalled over unintentional folding risk

Health Canada is recalling a baby stroller because of the risk that it could fold unintentionally.

About 140 of the strollers were sold under the brand name Phil & Ted's Dash Buggy/Stroller between February 2008 and May 2008 at various independent retailers of children's products, Health Canada said Friday.

One of the latching mechanisms, which lock the stroller in the "use" position, can fail to fully engage posing a risk that the stroller may fold unintentionally.

The Canadian distributor, Can-Am Baby Corp., has received five reports of incidents from Canadian retailers and consumers involving latches disengaging while the stroller is in use. No injuries have been reported.

The stroller has three wheels and a black or red canvas seat and canopy that can be used in single or double mode.

Dash strollers with the date code CD 0108, located on the inside of the metal frame, are affected by this recall.

Consumers can call the Oakville, Ont.-based distributor, Can-Am Baby Corp., at 905 847-6276 for more information.
