What’s the issue?

The problem with the UPPAbaby RIDGE is the disc brakes. The holes in the brake disc are large enough to catch the finger of a child.

“The stroller’s rear disc brakes have openings that can cause amputation or laceration if a non-occupant child’s fingertip gets caught in the openings while the stroller is in use,” according to UPPAbaby.

UPPAbaby also issued a statement on its website:

Our top priority at UPPAbaby is the safety of children. We conduct extensive testing to ensure UPPAbaby products meet all global industry and regulatory standards. Despite passing all tests and meeting all standards, UPPAbaby received one report about the all-terrain RIDGE stroller.

We take all product inquiries very seriously. Based on one consumer report to us, we believe the injury is likely due to consumer misuse. The RIDGE’s disc brakes have openings that can cause amputation or laceration if a non-occupant child’s fingertip gets caught in the openings while the stroller is in use.” 

What should consumers do? 

If you have one of these prams, you will need to contact Coolkidz support team. They will issue you with a new set of disc brakes as well as instructions on how to change the disc.

Contact via email at support@coolkidz.com.au for more information. You can also find out more about the UPPAbaby pram recall through the ACCC.
