Injuries,
Choking,
Suffocation

The product poses a risk of injuries because in some cases it is possible for the seat unit to be placed in an unlocked position as it is not wide enough. The pushchair can tip over when facing up a slope if there is a nursery bag (2 kg) on the handle. There are several problems with the restraint system. There is a risk of entrapment because within the access zone there are shear and compression points between moving parts. The internal lining of the pram body does not have sufficient tension so it presents a suffocation hazard. Detachable foam, small metal parts and a valve cap in the access zone can be easily detached, put into the mouth and swallowed.

The product does not comply with the relevant European standard EN 1888.

Several incidents in Sweden.
