WASHINGTON (WKOW) – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall involving 5,600 Kolcraft Contours Options LT Tandem strollers due to fall and choking hazards.
The agency says the front wheel assembly can break, posing a fall hazard to the child in the stroller.
There is also an additional hazard for strollers made in January and February 2012. The consumer agency says the nuts that hold the stroller's basket support screws in place can detach. Detached nuts can pose a choking hazard to young children.
The recall involves all Contours Options LT tandem strollers with model number ZT012. The items were sold at Burlington Coat Factory and juvenile product specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Target.com and other online retailers between February 2012 and July 2012.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says consumers who have the recalled product should immediately stop using the product and contact the company for free replacement wheels. In addition, consumers with the strollers that were made in January and February will also receive replacement nuts for the basket support screws.
