For over 60 years, Peg Perego has been manufacturing strollers and baby products sold in many different countries.
Each country has its own peculiar safety Standards which Peg Perego always adheres to.
In 2007 the USA standard was revised requiring a larger opening between the seat and the front tray/bumper of the stroller. In 2007 Peg Perego immediately conformed to this new standard for the items produced for the USA market.
For this reason, the recall only involves the USA strollers manufactured from 2004 through 2007, which complied with the standard at the time they were sold, but do not comply today with the current US standard.
The voluntary recall was issued by Peg Perego since these strollers may still be in use or on sale on second-hand markets and if not properly used, i.e. without fastening the safety harness and leaving the child unattended for a long time, can expose to risk of incidents.
As for all other markets, the standards are different: all our items do STILL comply with these different standards and for this reason no further action is needed in other countries.
Peg Perego takes this opportunity to remind that, beyond all standards, the use of safety harnesses and the normal surveillance of the child avoids risks of such incidents.
We recommend to always use the safety harness, as indicated on the product itself and in the Use and Care manuals, and to never leave the child unattended in the strollers.
The voluntary recall in the USA is in response to an incident happened in 2004. Only in July 2010 Peg Perego was notified of this incident. Once notified, Peg Perego co-operated with the Consumer Product Safety Commission in order to determine the proper course of action: as a result, Peg Perego is offering to the USA customers a free additional safety device to be attached onto the recalled strollers.
