Jané USA, a division of Jané Group of Charlotte, N.C., is recalling about 800 Jané Muum strollers.
An infant can pass through the opening between the stroller armrest and the seat bottom and his/her head and neck can become entrapped by the armrest, posing entrapment and strangulation hazards.
Thus, the strollers violate the federal Stroller and Carriage standard.
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
This recall involves the US model of Jané Muum strollers with a black frame, a reclining seat or hammock that is reversible and a hood. An insert is sold with the stroller for smaller babies. There is a basket for storage underneath the stroller seat.
The recalled strollers were sold in: dark gray and black (S85), light grey and black (S49), blue and black (S46) and green and black (S47).
“Muum by Jané” is printed on the front bottom frame. “Muum” is printed on the side frame and on the handle.
“Jané” and “Muum,” “Jané USA LLC,” “Muum US 5399US/S85” or “S47,” “S49,” “S46” are printed on a label on the leg of the stroller.
The strollers, manufactured in China, were sold at Albee Baby, Baby World, Kidsland, Toys R US, Dainty Baby, USA Baby stores and other stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and other websites from July 2016, through August 2017, for between $300 and $450.
