phil&teds is recalling the Explorer and Hammerhead stroller models because the brakes on some of the strollers may stop working correctly, creating a risk of injury.
The recalled phil&ted strollers have metal frames and were sold as single strollers, or with a kit to make them double strollers.
The Explorer is a three-wheeled stroller with a cloth seat and canopy, and were sold in black, apple green, navy, red/black, and apple green/black. The Hammerhead is a four-wheeled stroller with similar features and sold in black only. The recalled strollers may be identified by:
- the phil&teds logo located on the harness
- stickers on the rear axle bar that read either “phil&teds model EX explorer” or “phil&teds model HH hammerhead”
- The serial numbers 0610/0001 to 0111/4788 written on a sticker attached to the inside left hand hinge when viewing the stroller from behind
The recalled Explorer and Hammerhead strollers were sold from August 2010 through June 2011 for between $475 and $500 at Babies R Us and speciality juvenial retailers in the United States and Canada, plus online at philandteds.com, pishposhbaby.com, and albeebaby.com. Approximately 7,400 Explorer strollers and 160 Hammerhead strollers were sold in the United States.
Consumers should immediately stop using the stroller and contact phil&teds to arrange to receive an upgraded brake assembly. For more information, contact phil&teds USA at (855) 652-9019 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday, or visit www.philandteds.com.
