One of the first purchases a new parent usually makes is a stroller. Some parents spend days, or even weeks, researching various stroller models to find a suitable transportation device for their newborn child so they will be safe and comfortable. This is why the recent recall of Zooper Tango Double Strollers is so disturbing.
The defect with the Zooper Tango stroller is a frame latch failure which causes the stroller to collapse, according to ABC2News.com. There have been 185 reports of this frame latch failure including an incident involving a 3-year-old boy and 13-month-old boy who were injured after the stroller they were in collapsed, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
As the mother of a newborn, I cannot fully express how frustrating it is to read about these types of defects. Stroller companies need to appreciate the fact that parents are placing a level of trust in their product and should not have to worry about a stroller falling apart in the middle of the street.
Lan Enterprises, the manufacturer of the Zooper Tango Double Stroller, issued the voluntary recall and parents are encouraged to stop using this stroller model immediately.
