Zoom Car Seat Adapter Recall Issued Due to Fall Hazard
Roughly 1,500 car seat adapters have been recalled after the manufacturer received reports of the adapter clips loosening on the stroller frames, which may pose a serious fall hazard for young children.
A Zoom car seat adapter recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on December 30, following at least nine customer complaints indicating the adapters loosened from the frame of the stroller. To date, the manufacturer is not aware of any injuries related to the products.
The recall involves all Joovy’s Zoom car seat adapters with metal frames and black plastic clips designed to attach infant car seats to the stroller frames. The frames measure roughly 17” x 13” x 10”. The following models and model numbers are included in the recall; Graco with model number 00945, Chicco with model number 00946, and Peg Perego with model number 00947. The adapters have the word “Joovy” and the model number written on the label located on the center of the end bar.
