iCandy World has issued a recall of its Cherry model strollers due to a defect in the design of the stroller, which could pose a strangulation risk for young children. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the opening between the stroller’s bumper bar and seat bottom may allow an infant’s body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck, posing a strangulation hazard to children who are not harnessed. If your child has suffered serious injuries while using an iCandy World stroller or another potentially dangerous children’s product, contact our reputable attorneys at Atkins & Markoff to discuss your legal options. You may have grounds to file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturing company, in order to pursue financial compensation for your child’s injuries.
STROLLERS MODELS AFFECTED BY RECALL
The stroller recall affects the iCandy Cherry stroller in the colors Liquorice (red and black) and Fudge (light-medium brown). The recalled strollers were manufactured in China by iCandy World Ltd. of Bedfordshire, UK, and imported by iCandy America Inc. of Brooklyn, NY. The children’s products were sold at Buy Buy Baby and other juvenile product stores across the country, as well as online at www.buybuybaby.com and other online retailers, from October 2009 through December 2012, for about $400.
The iCandy stroller system has a telescopic folding frame where a bassinet, seat or infant carrier car seat can be placed. The seat unit features three recline positions, a 5-point safety harness, an adjustable footrest, a removable bumper bar and a removable canopy. There is a printed white cherry logo on the rear of the stroller’s seat unit, and a label found under the basket fabric on the frame tubing that supports the lower basket will include information on the following recalled models:
