The button on some buckles that releases the harness can break and detach

The Ergobaby Carrier of Los Angeles, Calif., is recalling about 2,800 METROUS1, METROUS2 and METROUS4 Compact City strollers.

The button on some buckles that releases the harness can break and detach when pressed by the user while the child is in the stroller, making it difficult to release, and posing a choking hazard to young children.

The firm has received 15 consumer reports of the button on the buckle that releases the harness breaking and detaching when pressed by the user, making it difficult to release the buckle. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the Ergobaby METROUS1, METROUS2, or METROUS4 Compact City Strollers.

The strollers come with a harness that has a black release button in the middle of the buckle. The model name is located on the inside of the frame, above the right-side rear wheel.

The strollers have a black, gray, or teal blue canopy and Ergo Baby printed on the front bottom of the stroller.

The strollers, manufactured in China, were sold online at, and from July 2018, through September 2019, for about $300.
