Child strollers sold at both Kmart and Target have been recalled over fears they may overturn.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission put out the warning on Monday that the strollers had been installed with a faulty rear axle that had deeper grooves on each side of the wheels.
That could cause the rear axle to snap at the wheels’ position and the strollers could fall and injure a child inside.
The products of concern are the CNP Brands – Childcare Stroller Grey, Childcare Soho Stroller Black and Childcare Zeke Stroller Navy.
The batch numbers affected are TA-17346876 and TA-17346881 for the Childcare Stroller Grey; TA-1988600, TA-1993322 and TA-1993323 for the Childcare Soho Stroller Black; and TA-1988600 and TA-1993331 for the Childcare Zeke Stroller Navy.
They were sold nationally and internationally between September 30, 2019 and February 21, 2020.
“Consumers should cease using the product and contact CNP Brands to arrange a replacement of rear axle and wheels to be sent out with installation instructions, or to arrange to have the stroller repaired,” the ACCC says in a recall notice.
CNP Brands can be contacted via its website of by calling 1800 656 743.
