Nationwide stroller recall..after child dies of strangulation

Peg Perego is recalling hundreds of thousands of strollers.

The company is recalling about 223,000 Venezia and Pliko-P3 strollers made between January 2004 and September 2007.

Peg Perego says a 6-month-old died of strangulation in one of the strollers in 2004 and a 7-month-old was nearly strangled in 2006.

Only strollers with a child tray and one cup holder are part of the recall. The model number is located on a white label on the back of the Pliko P-3's stroller seat and on the Venezia stroller's footboard.

Strollers with two cup holders are not part of the recall.

Consumers should stop using the strollers and contact Peg Perego for a free repair kit at 888-734-6020 or visit the firm's website www.PegPeregoUSA.com.
