Three different models of Costway strollers, approximately 16,000 strollers are impacted.

According to the CPSC, the strollers "violate the Federal Standard for Carriages and Strollers" by allowing a child’s body to pass through an opening between the tray and seat, leading to possible entrapment or strangulation.

There have been no injuries or incidents reported at this time.

The recalled strollers were sold on the company’s website as well as on Amazon between May 2016 and December 2019.

The CPSC advises strollers be returned for a refund.

People with these strollers can call Costway toll-free at 844-242-1885 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or by email at recall@costway.com for more information. The firm is contacting all known purchasers directly.
