The strollers were sold at a number of national retailers including Babies R Us and Buy Buy Baby, as well as online. As this recall is for older strollers, many parents may have purchased them second-hand at thrift stores or yard sales, or received them from family members or friends.
Consumers who have these strollers should stop using them immediately and visit www.pegperegousa.com for repair kit information.
