Costway Recalls Baby Strollers Over Strangulation Concerns

A vital notice to parents. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled approximately 16,000 infant and child double strollers due to fall, entrapment, and strangulation risks. The affected batch of strollers are manufactured by California based Company, Costway, and were sold on Costway's website and Amazon between May 2016 and December 2019.

The recall comes after it was discovered that three models manufactured by Costway violate federal standards for carriages and strollers. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the strollers allow a child's body to pass through an opening between the tray and seat, posing the risk of entrapment or strangulation.

The recalled models are:

• Infant Double Stroller, model #BB4476 in red, gray, black

• Infant Double Stroller, model #BB4613 in black

• Face to Face Double Stroller, model #BB4690 in gray

Earlier this month, Island Wear recalled 940 of its Umbrella Strollers due to similar violations. With recalls increasing, parents need to stay informed to keep their precious bundles of joy safe from defective consumer products. According to a study done by Nationwide Children's Hospital, it is estimated two children suffer a stroller or baby carrier related injury every hour.

If you or someone you know has been injured as the result of a defective product, contact an attorney at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner by calling 713-396-3964 or toll-free at 1-800-594-4884.
