Baby Stroller and Car Seat Recall by Century Products
CPSC, Century Announce Recall of Multi-Use Baby Strollers
Century baby stroller and car seat recall instructions and toll free support numbers will be provided below.
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Century Products Co., of Macedonia, Ohio, is voluntarily recalling about 650,000 "Take 2," "Travel Solutions," "Pioneer," "Travelite," and "Pro Sport" 4-in-1 strollers. The strollers can unexpectedly collapse or the car seat / carrier adapter can unexpectedly detach. When this happens, an infant or young child inside the stroller or an attached car seat / carrier can fall to the ground and suffer serious injuries.
Century has received 681 reports of incidents, including 250 injuries when the stroller unexpectedly collapsed or the car seat/carrier adapter detached. These reports include three concussions, two skull fractures, one fractured elbow, and two chipped teeth. The remaining injuries include bruises and cuts.
The recalled strollers are for toddlers when used alone and for infants when a car seat/carrier is connected to the stroller. The model names for the recalled strollers can be found on the footrest, the seat pad, the legs of the frame or on a white label on the side locks. Below are photographs and list of affected models and dates of manufacture.
Mass merchandise, juvenile products and discount department stores nationwide sold these strollers from approximately December 1996 through March 2001 for between $100 and $200.
Consumers should stop using these strollers and call Century toll-free at (800) 766-9998 anytime to order a free repair kit. Consumers should have their strollers available, as Century will help consumers determine if they have one of the recalled models. Parents should continue to use these carriers as car seats. CPSC and Century remind caregivers to always restrain infants according to the instructions when in the car seat/carrier.
