Peg Perego Recalls 223,000 Strollers in Massive Recall

Peg Perego announced a massive stroller recall earlier this week due to the risk that children can become trapped and strangled between the stroller trays. The company is recalling approximately 223,000 strollers, including the Venezia and Pliko-P3 strollers in various colors.

According to this MSNBC article, the recall follows the death of a six-month-old boy from California who died of strangulation in one of the recalled strollers in 2004. A seven-month-old girl from New York was also nearly strangled in 2006, according to Peg Perego USA Inc.

Peg Perego has said that there is a risk of entrapment and strangulation, particularly among children younger than one year old, when the child is not harnessed into the stroller. If a child is unharnessed, he or she can pass through the opening between the tray and the seat bottom and the child's neck and head can become trapped by the tray.

Only strollers with a child tray and one cup holder are part of the recall. Those strollers that have a bumper bar in front of the child or a tray with two cup holders are not included in this recall. The recalled strollers include model numbers:

  • Pliko-P3 Stroller Model Numbers Venezia Stroller Model Numbers

  • IPFR28US34xxxxxxxx IPPF28NA32 IPVA13MU09

  • IPFT28NA63 IPPF28NA57 IPVA13MU10

  • IPFT28NA64 IPPF28NA65 IPVA13US09

  • IPP328MU10 IPPF28NA66 IPVA13US10

  • IPP328MU09 IPPF28NA67 IPVA13US32

  • IPP328US09 IPPF28NA68 IPVA13US34

  • IPP328US10 IPPO28US32 IPVC13NA32

  • IPP329US10 IPPO28US34 IPVC13NA34

  • IPPA28US32 IPPO28US62

  • IPPA28US33 IPPO28US69

  • IPPA28US34 IPPO28US70

  • IPPD28NA34 IPPO28US71

The model number can be found on a white label on the back of the Pliko P-3's stroller seat and on the Venezia stroller's footboard.

The recalled Peg Perego strollers were manufactured between January 2004 and September 2007, before a voluntary industry standard was implemented in January 2008 that requires larger stroller openings between the stroller’s tray and the seat bottom in order to prevent infant entrapment and strangulation risks.

The Pliko-P3 strollers retailed for between $270 and $330, while the Venezia strollers retailed for $350 to $450. The recalled strollers were sold at various retailers, including Buy Buy Baby and Babies R Us.

Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the strollers and contact Peg Perego for a free repair kit at (888) 734-6020 or by visiting the company’s website at www.PegPeregoUSA.com.

It is extremely important that parents and caregivers take note of the Peg Perego stroller recall and discontinue using the stroller until it can be repaired. As we reported, parents do not necessarily heed recall warnings. In fact, a new report from the consumer advocacy group Kids In Danger revealed that fewer children’s products were recalled in 2011 than in 2010, but that parents aren’t necessarily heeding the recall warnings.  Specifically, the report showed that recalls of children’s products decreased 24 percent from 2010, but the number of injuries associated with recalled products increased seven percent.

If your child has been injured by one of the recalled strollers, you may wish to contact the experienced Illinois product liability attorneys at Steinberg, Goodman & Kalish to learn about a possible personal injury or product liability claim.
