iCandy Cherry stroller recalled due to strangulation hazard

iCandy Cherry stroller recalled due to strangulation hazard

iCandy World has recalled 830 of its Cherry strollers because the opening between the bumper bar and seat bottom can allow an infant to pass through and become entrapped at the neck, posing a strangulation hazard, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Back in December, we designated the iCandy Cherry stroller a Consumer Reports Don’t Buy due to this safety hazard.

The recalled iCandy Cherry strollers were sold for $400 by Buy Buy Baby and other retailers from October 2009 through December 2012. The recall only includes strollers in Fudge (light-medium brown) and Liquorice (red and black). The stroller has a white cherry logo on the rear of the seat and a label under the basket fabric on the frame tubing. Affected models are listed in the chart below.

If you have one of the recalled iCandy Cherry strollers, remove the bumper bar and contact iCandy for a free replacement: Call 877-484-4179, visit icandyworld.com, or email info@icandyamerica.com.

This week the CPSC also announced two other baby and child product recalls:

Batch number Cherry stroller color Serial number
FUDGE (IW119) 1-500
170 LIQUORICE (IW124)/td> 501-1000

181 FUDGE (IW119) 1501-2000
