Strollers recalled because infant can fall out of seat

WASHINGTON (AP) _ An Indiana company is recalling 300,000 baby strollers because the seat can partially detach from the frame and allow the infant to fall. There have been 77 reports of problems, including dozens of injuries, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

Dorel Juvenile Group USA, of Columbus, is recalling the COSCO ``Rock 'N Roller'' strollers, which have seats that can be removed, repositioned or used as a bassinet. The seat can partially detach if certain pins are bent or missing, or if the seat has not been correctly attached, allowing the infant to fall out of the seat.

Among the reported incidents were 46 reports of infants sustaining bruises and bumps; another child had a slight concussion, and one had cuts that needed stitches.

The strollers were sold at Wal-Mart, Kmart, Sears, Toys R Us, Target, JC Penney's and other children's stores nationwide from April 1996 through August 2002 for $79-$179. They were manufactured in China and have dark blue or green metal frames with four wheels on the front and two wheels on the back.

The side folding area of the frame has a white plastic cover labeled ``Rock 'N Roller by Geoby COSCO.'' A label on the back of the frame has model numbers 01-654, 01-622, 01-624, 01-646 or 01-656. The seat cover is usually a dark blue or green printed fabric with ``COSCO A Dorel Company'' on the footrest.

Consumers should stop using the strollers immediately and call to see how to inspect stroller for possible replacement. Call 1-800-711-0402 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday.
