Valco Baby have recalled their Tri Mode Single and Twin Jogging Strollers. The opening between the grab bar and seat of the stroller can allow an infant’s body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck by the grab bar, posing a strangulation hazard when a child is not harnessed. “Valco Baby” is printed on the headrest and the footboard of the stroller. The grab bar is optional and can be removed from the stroller. Consumers should immediately remove the grab bar from the stroller and contact Valco Baby to receive a free replacement grab bar at (800) 610-7850, www.valcobaby.com or email at [email protected]

When using any stroller, parents and caregivers are encouraged always to secure children by using the safety harness and never to leave them unattended. To learn more about the importance of stroller safety, download CPSC’s safety alert: www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PUBS/5096.pdf.
