The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has approved new federal mandatory safety standards for carriages and strollers. The new standard addresses stroller head entrapment, broken wheels, parking brake failures, locking mechanism problems, restraint issues such as child unbuckling the restraint and restraint breakage or detachment, and hinge issues such as pinching and amputations. CPSC has received about 1,300 incident reports related to strollers reported from January 1, 2008 through June 30, 2013. Four of those incidents involved a fatality. The new standard will take effect in September 2015. Learn more about the new standard on the CPSC website.
