Entrapment and strangulation hazards prompt recall of Jane strollers

By Susan Lasser, J.D.

Jane USA LLC, a division of Jane Group, of Charlotte, N.C., has recalled about 800 Jane Muum strollers because the strollers violate the federal Stroller and Carriage standard. An infant can pass through the opening between the stroller armrest and the seat bottom and his or her head and neck can become entrapped by the armrest, posing entrapment and strangulation hazards (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 18-167, May 24, 2018).

Incidents and injuries. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

Product description. This recall involves the U.S. model of Jane Muum strollers. The recalled strollers have a black frame, a reclining seat or hammock which is reversible, and a hood. An insert is sold with the stroller for smaller babies. There is a basket for storage underneath the stroller seat. The recalled strollers were sold in the following colors: dark gray and black (S85), light grey and black (S49), blue and black (S46), and green and black (S47). "Muum by Jane" is printed on the front bottom frame; and "Muum" is printed on the side frame and on the handle. Additionally, "Jane" and "Muum"; "Jane USA LLC"; "Muum US 5399US/S85"; or "S47," "S49," "S46" are printed on a label on the leg of the stroller.

Manufactured in China, these recalled strollers were sold at Albee Baby, Baby World, Kidsland, Toys R US, Dainty Baby, USA Baby stores, and other stores nationwide, as well as online at Amazon.com and other websites, from July 2016 through August 2017. The strollers sold for between $300 and $450.

Remedy. Consumers should stop using the recalled strollers immediately and contact Jane for a free repair. The repair consists of a free replacement armrest. Consumers can continue using the recalled strollers if they remove the armrest and harness the child properly until they receive the replacement armrest.

Customer contact. For more information, customers may contact Jane toll-free at 844-200-7971 anytime to leave message, or from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET, Monday through Thursday, for a live operator. Customers also may email the company at info@jane-usa.com, or online at www.jane-usa.com and click on MUUM USA MODEL.
