In a recall notice issued Wednesday, Health Canada said the handlebars on the strollers may detach from the product, posing a possible fall hazard.

The affected products were manufactured between May 2018 and September 2019.

The recalled strollers have the following product numbers: 11000001-5,11000017,11000330 and 11000337-342.

The product label is located on the lower inside frame of the stroller.

However, Health Canada says strollers with stickers that have QC 2020 next to the product label are not part of the recall, “regardless of the date code.”
