Nearly 4,000 baby walkers were recalled on March 2020 because of safety issues reported to the manufacturer. Kids & Koalas-branded baby walkers have been recalled because they don’t stop at the edge of steps or ledges, functions that are required by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The Commission advises all parents to dismantle and throw away all affected baby walkers.
The recall also says that babies and toddlers can slip while inside the walker and their head can get caught on the harness.
Defective Strollers and Walkers
It’s estimated that 10,000 injuries involving strollers and walkers happen in the United States every year, according to the CPSC Nursery Product Report. Sadly, a handful of those injuries lead to death. Between 2007 and 2013, 33 recalls were issued, according to the CPSC report, affecting nearly 6 million strollers. There were 5 deaths associated with those recalls.
Were You Affected?
Kids & Koalas baby walkers were sold from September 2017 until July 2018, and they came in an assortment of colors (grey, black, green, pink, blue, and white) and had eight wheels. They also had the “Kids & Koalas” logo printed on the front of the tray and on the back of the seat.
Parents can tell if their stroller is part of the recall by checking the model number on the bottom of the walker. All model X002 strollers are part of the recall.
The baby walkers were sold exclusively at Amazon.com. Amazon is actively contacting anyone who purchased a Kids & Koala baby stroller to notify them of the recall and to issue a refund.
