Mutsy USA Recalls EVO Strollers Due to Strangulation Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled certain EVO Strollers due to the fact that the opening between the grab bar and seat bottom can allow the infant’s body to fall through and become entrapped at the neck risking a strangulation hazard when the child is not harnessed. The recall involves strollers manufactured between February and November 2012 with the following model numbers: MT12-03, MT12-11, MT12-14, MT12-31, MT12-34, MT12-37, MT12-39, MT12-42, MT12-43 and MT12-48. The model number and date code can be found underneath the stroller seat on a white sticker. The strollers have black or silver-colored metal frames with brown, navy blue, black, or white seats. “EVO” is printed on the lower back frame of the stroller. The strollers were sold at juvenile product stores nationwide and websites including amazon.com between April and December 2012. The units cost approximately $400. Consumers should immediately stop using the stroller and contact Musty USA to receive a free replacement seat unit and grab bar.
