What are the defects?

According to the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC), the strollers do not comply with the mandatory standard ‘Competition and Consumer Act 2010 – Consumer Protection Notice No. 8 of 2007 – Consumer Product Safety Standard for Prams and Strollers’.

In layman terms, the strollers do not have a red parking brake actuator and the safety warnings and manufacturer labels are missing or insufficient.

Because of the insufficient labelling and missing safety features, the products may pose a risk of injury to a child.

What action should you take?

Consumers are advised to stop using the product and contact the eBay store from which the item was bought for a full refund, including the original shipping cost.

You can message the seller via the eBay Message Centre, or contact the relevant seller directly.
