Qbit Child Strollers Recalled

About 29,400 Aria Qbit child strollers are being recalled because they pose an injury risk, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says.

A gap in the stroller's folding side hinge can pinch and possibly cut a caregiver's hand during unfolding. Also, the stroller can fold unexpectedly during use, posing an injury and fall hazard to the caregiver and child.

Aria has received five reports of caregivers being pinched by the stroller hinge, and four of them required stitches for cuts. There have also been 71 reports of the stroller unexpectedly folding during use, resulting in 12 minor bumps or bruises to a child or caregiver, and one broken wrist and elbow to an adult due to a fall.

Consumers with the strollers should stop using them and contact for a free replacement stroller. The company can be reached toll-free at 888-591-5540 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or consumers can go to Aria's website.
