Today, Thursday, Valco Baby and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission reported that they are voluntarily recalling about 12,000 strollers.
What does this mean for you?
The stroller models being recalled are the Valco Baby Tri Mode Single and Twin Jogging Srollers.
An opening between the grab bar and seat bottom of the stroller has been found wide enough for a child's head to slip through catching them at the neck and posing a risk of strangulation.
