Tike Tech and Valco Baby recalls jogging strollers

Name of affected products:
– Tike Tech Single City X3 and X3 Sport Jogging Strollers
– Valco Baby Tri Mode Single and Twin Jogging Strollers

Hazard: The opening between the grab bar and seat bottom of the stroller can allow an infant’s body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck by the grab bar, posing a strangulation hazard to young children when a child is not harnessed.

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the grab bar from the stroller and contact Tike Tech to receive a free replacement grab bar.
