The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Unique Baby Products USA LLC, d/b/a ValcoBaby, of Brooklyn, N.Y., has announced a voluntary recall of ValcoBaby “Joey” booster toddler seats for strollers. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
The spring button mechanism securing the booster toddler seat to the baby stroller can disengage, allowing for the carried toddler to fall. The firm has received two reports of a child falling from the booster toddler seat after it disengaged from the stroller. No injuries were reported.
The product is a booster toddler seat, both single and twin, designed to attach to Valco “Tri-Mode” and “Zee” strollers. Only booster seats with batch numbers 3111, 7819, 7822 and 7831 and model number TOD1058, TOD9109 and ZEE0649 are included in the recall. The batch and model numbers are printed on a label attached to the product frame. The seats have a black color fabric seat on white metal base frame. About 975 seats were sold at various juvenile product stores, websites and the firm’s website valcobaby.com nationwide from June 2011 through June 2012 for between $80 and $100.
Consumers should stop using these toddler booster seats immediately and contact ValcoBaby to arrange for a free replacement attachment mechanism.
