Jané Muum strollers recalled due to entrapment, strangulation hazards

BETHESDA — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of approximately 800 Jané Muum strollers Thursday due to entrapment and strangulation hazards.

An infant can pass through the opening between the stroller armrest and the seat bottom, which could lead to their head and neck becoming entrapped by the armrest, the commission said.

Description: This recall involves the US model of Jané Muum strollers. The recalled strollers have a black frame, a reclining seat or hammock that is reversible and a hood. An insert is sold with the stroller for smaller babies. There is a basket for storage underneath the stroller seat. The recalled strollers were sold in: dark gray and black (S85), light grey and black (S49), blue and black (S46) and green and black (S47). “Muum by Jané” is printed on the front bottom frame. “Muum” is printed on the side frame and on the handle. “Jané” and “Muum,” “Jané USA LLC,” “Muum US 5399US/S85” or “S47,” “S49,” “S46” are printed on a label on the leg of the stroller.

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Jané for a free repair. The repair consists of a free replacement armrest. Consumers can continue using the recalled strollers if they remove the armrest and harness the child properly until they receive the replacement armrest.
