(FOX 13) - Almost 30,000 strollers are being recalled because the adult user's hands could be pinch or cut during the unfolding process.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission about 29,400 Qbit strollers are being recalled because a gap in the folding side hinge can pinch a caregiver’s hand during unfolding, posing a laceration hazard. The stroller can also fold unexpectedly during use, posing an injury and fall hazard to the caregiver and child.
The recall involves the gb Qbit lightweight stroller for children up to 50 pounds. The strollers are mostly black with an accent color.
There have been five reports of consumers being pinched by the stroller hinge mechanism, resulting in four consumers needing stitches for cuts. There were also 71 reports of the stroller unexpectedly folding during use, resulting in 12 minor bumps or bruises to a child or caregiver and one fractured wrist and elbow to an adult due to a fall.
The strollers were sold at Babies R US and other retail stores nationwide and Albeebaby.com, Amazon.com, Dmartstores.com, Medbroad.com and other online retailers from May 2015 through November 2016 for about $180.
Anyone with the recalled stroller is asked to stop using it and contact Aria Child for a free replacement stroller.
