2 Peg Perego strollers recalled in Canada
Recall for Peg Perego's Pliko P3 and Venezia strollers that were manufactured from January 2004 through September 2007
Two older models of Peg Perego strollers are under recall in Canada over a potential strangulation hazard.
Monday's recall notice from Health Canada applies to Peg Perego's s Pliko P3 and Venezia strollers that were manufactured from January 2004 through September 2007.
Only strollers that have a child tray with one cup holder are part of the recall. Strollers with a bumper bar in front of the child or a tray with two cup holders are not included.
Consumers should contact the manufacturer for a free retrofit kit.
The strollers were manufactured in Italy sold in various colours and fabrics at various retailers across Canada.
Last week, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall of several models of strollers due to a death that occurred in the United States of a six-month old baby by entrapment and strangulation in 2004. The child was not restrained and was sleeping unattended in the stroller.
"These strollers met all Canadian regulations at that time and also meet the current regulations," Health Canada said in a statement.
"Neither Health Canada nor Peg Perego has received any reports of Canadian fatalities or injuries related to the affected models."
About 26,000 of the recalled strollers were sold from March 2004 to December 2009.
