Houston baby stroller injury lawyers point out that the Venezia and Pliko-P3 models of nay strollers made by Peg Perego USA Inc. between 2004 and 2007 pose risks of fatal strangulation to your infants. The U.S. CPSC warns that if children aren’t harnessed while in the strollers, a design defect in the strollers could allow them to slip down and their heads could be trapped at the opening between the tray and the seat.
A 6-month-old boy in California died from strangulation in 2004 in one of the recalled baby strollers when his head became trapped between the seat and the tray. In 2007, a 7-month-old girl in New York nearly dies from a similar incident in one of the recalled Peg Perego baby strollers.
The CPSC says that standards regarding the safe manufacture of baby strollers have become more stringent in the years since these Peg Perego baby strollers’ manufacture. Previously used baby strollers often get passed down for use by younger children and they remain a popular item for aftermarket resale online and in stores.

The list of recalled model numbers has been posted on the CPSC website and has been linked to this article for your convenience.
