Oct. 24, 2012—ValcoBaby recalled its Joey toddler booster seat that’s used for strollers. The spring-button mechanism that secures the seat to the stroller can disengage, which would pose a fall hazard for the child who is in the seat.
The recalled product was sold in single and double-seat models and is designed to attach to Valco Tri-Mode and Zee strollers. The affected batch numbers are 3111, 7819, 7822 and 7831. The affected model numbers are TOD1058 and TOD9109. The batch and model numbers are printed on a label that’s attached to the product’s frame.
The recalled product was sold at juvenile product stores and at valcobaby.com and other websites from June 2011 through June 2012. ValcoBaby received two reports of a child that fell from the booster seat after it disengaged from the stroller. No injuries were reported. Consumers should stop using the product and contact ValcoBaby to arrange for a free replacement attachment mechanism.
