Mockingbird Expands Its Recall to Include 25,000 Single Strollers
Just four months after voluntarily recalling around 150,000 of its Single-to-Double Strollers, the popular baby stroller brand, Mockingbird, has expanded its initial recall to include 25,000 of its Single Strollers. Here’s what you need to know.
Why are Mockingbird’s Single and Single-to-Double Strollers being recalled?
Mockingbird’s Single Strollers are being recalled for the same stroller frame issues reported in the brand’s single-to-double strollers months ago. Throughout late 2022, The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) received 138 reports from stroller users of cracks in the stroller frame, including eight injuries involving cuts, scratches or bruising to children in the strollers.
In a recent social post, Mockingbird noted that after additional testing and analysis, it had decided out of an abundance of caution to extend the voluntary recall. Since the recall was expanded to include single strollers, Mockingbird has received 13 reports of cracks in the frame of Single Strollers. No injuries to children in the strollers have been reported.
While the brand maintains the issue affects only a small percentage of strollers, it emphasizes that safety is its top priority and encourages all parents with Single and Single-to-Double Strollers to check their lot number against the recall list. No Mockingbird strollers currently for sale are affected by the recall.
How do I know if my product is affected by the recall?
The recall expansion includes Mockingbird Single Strollers with a lot number between 18322 and 22278, and lot numbers 23174 and 23175. The original recall includes Mockingbird Single-to-Double Strollers with a lot number between 20091 and 22602.
The lot number is a five-digit number that can be found on the white product label located on the inner left side of the stroller frame near the top of the basket. You can enter in your lot number to check and see if your stroller is a part of the recall on the Mockingbird recall page.
What should I do if my product is recalled?
The good news is parents won’t have to throw out their recalled Mockingbird Single-to-Double strollers. While Mockingbird isn’t offering refunds for the product the brand is happy to provide parents with a free frame reinforcement kit for all affected strollers.
Mockingbird urges parents to stop using affected Single and Single-to-Double Strollers until they have received and installed their free frame reinforcement. You can fill out a simple form to request your free frame reinforcement once confirming your lot number at Mockingbird.com.
