Product Safety Australia has issued a warning to parents with the Thule Sleek Stroller. The stylish stroller, which is often featured on best pram lists, has been recalled due to the risk of child injury.

What is the concern? 

Thule is an incredibly popular brand and its Sleek Stroller is a favourite for parents. It’s streamlined, stylish and great for city living.

However, according to Product Safety Australia, there could be two screws missing from the handlebar to the frame. Without these screws in place, the handlebar may detach from the frame.

How scary!

As PSA explains,

If the handlebar detaches from the frame, there is a risk of injury to the child.”

  • The Thule Sleek Stroller that has been recalled was sold from 1 January 2019 to 31 August 2020.
  • The stroller was sold nationally and online, including through Go Active Outdoors and Thule Australia.
