NEW YORK — Mockingbird has voluntarily recalled some 149,000 of its strollers due to possible cracks in the frame that can injure or cause children to fall.
There have been 138 reports of cracks in the single-to-double strollers' frame, with eight children receiving cuts, scratches or bruising, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The cracks can also pose a fall risk for children riding in the stroller, the commission added.
In a statement, Mockingbird said the recall includes single-to-double strollers with certain lot numbers. The company asked anyone with a recalled stroller, which retails anywhere from $395 to $450, request a "frame reinforcement kit" that includes two small clamps that attach to the stroller frame and stop the crack from occurring.

"We regularly test our strollers above and beyond the required industry standards, and constantly seek opportunities in our products and testing programs to create even safer strolling."
