If you purchased a Baby Trend Tango Mini Stroller last year, you may be impacted by this recall. These strollers can collapse suddenly when the hinge joints release while in use.

Thankfully, no babies have been harmed by this design flaw, but Baby Trend is recalling the strollers out of an abundance of caution. Here’s what you need to know.

What Happened?

The Tango Mini Stroller by Baby Trend seemed like a great purchase for parents on the go. The lightweight, durable folding stroller included a cup holder and storage basket–all appealing features for parents who need to run errands with their little ones.

Unfortunately, not all of the strollers were as safe as they seemed.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, “Both of the stroller’s hinge joints can release and collapse under pressure, posing a fall hazard to children in the stroller.”

No injuries have been reported due to the faulty hinge joints as of now.

Recall Details

Baby Trend has issued a recall for approximately 2000 units that were sold at Amazon and Target between October and November 2019.

The model numbers included in this recall are:

Quartz Pink: ST31D09A
Sedona Gray: ST31D10A
Jet Black: ST31D11A
Purest Purple: ST31D03A

Do not continue using your stroller if it is part of the recall. You will be eligible for a refund or replacement direct from the manufacturer.

If you have any questions about the recall, please contact Baby Trend’s customer service at 1-800-328-7363 or email info@babytrend.com.

Check the CPSC Website Regularly

While the thought of your baby’s stroller collapsing is scary, at least the Baby Trend recall happened before any children could be injured. Sadly, that was not the case for the inclined sleepers by Fisher-Price and other manufacturers that were recalled last year.

At least 30 infants died over a 10-year period while sleeping in the inclined bassinets.

It’s a good idea to regularly check the Consumer Product Safety Commission website to see if any of the products you currently own have been recalled. Recalls can happen months or even years after your initial purchase, and not every recall makes the news, so it’s essential that you stay informed.
