Stoke AS are recalling their Scoot range of Compact Strollers for products within the serial number range of 0024764 to 0025055, as the safety warning “Use this harness at all times” is not included on the warning label on the harness which is required by AS/NZS 2088:2000, 11.1 (e).

As the consumers cannot read the safety warning, there is a risk that the harness will not be used. If the harness is not used, there is a risk for the baby to fall out of the stroller.
