Lan Enterprises has recalled about 3,700 <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">Zooper Tango Double Strollers due to collapse hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced. The CPSC is advising consumers to stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed and notes that it is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
The recalled Zooper Tango Double Strollers were manufactured in China and distributed by Lan Enterprises LLC of Hillsboro, Oregon and formerly of Beaverton, Oregon.
The stroller’s frame latch above the front wheels can fail when the stroller hits an object, causing the stroller to unexpectedly collapse. This can result in minor scrapes, cuts, and bruises. To date, the company has received 185 reports of frame latch failures. In one incident a 13-month-old boy and a three-year-old boy received scrapes and bruises when their stroller hit a sidewalk and the stroller collapsed.
This recall involves 2007 and 2008 Zooper Tango Double Strollers with a model number of SL808B and SL808F, which are printed on the original packaging. The strollers have production dates ranging from January 1, 2007, through April 30, 2008; production dates are printed on the warning labels attached to the seats. The word “Zooper” is printed on the stroller canopies and grab bars. The Web address www.zooper.com is printed on the basket under the stroller seats.
The recalled strollers were sold at juvenile product and mass merchandise retailers nationwide and at www.babiesrus.com from January 2007 through August 2008 for between $400 and $430.
