The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of two items.
First on the list of recent recalls, EVO Strollers. It has been discovered that the opening between the grab bar and seat bottom of the stroller can allow an infant’s body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck, posing a strangulation hazard to young children when the child is not harnessed. The recall affects EVO strollers manufactured between February 2012 (01.02.12) and November 2012 (30.11.12) with the following model numbers: MT12-03, MT12-11, MT12-14, MT12-31, MT12-34, MT12-37, MT12-39, MT12-42, MT12-43 and MT12-48. The model number and date code can be found underneath the stroller seat on a white sticker. The strollers have black or silver-colored metal frames with brown, navy blue, black, or white seats. “EVO” is printed on the lower back frame of the stroller.
Last on today’s recall list are BlueStar residential gas wall ovens. It has been determined that some of the wall ovens have been improperly installed and/or have damaged flexible gas appliance connectors, thus posing a fire hazard. This recall involves all colors of three models of BlueStar gas-powered stainless steel wall ovens manufactured prior to November 23, 2012. Oven sizes include 24, 30, and 36-inch wide units. Each of the three sizes was available for use with natural gas or liquid propane.
The propane version is designated by the letter “L” at the end of the model number. Model numbers and date codes are located on the rating plate inside the control panel. There is a BlueStar logo on the upper left front of the oven, above the door.
The 24-Inch BlueStar residential wall oven with a swing door recall include model numbers: BWO24AGS and BWO24AGSL. The 30-Inch BlueStar residential wall oven with French doors recall includes model numbers: BWO30AGS and BWO30AGSL.
