Certain models of the Safety 1st Step n Go Travel System, manufactured in Canada by Dorel Juvenile Canada, are being recalled.

The stroller tray folding mechanism can partially disengage on one side when used with an infant car seat attached to the stroller, posing a fall hazard. Health Canada has not received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of this product in Canada, but is nonetheless recalling the product.

The model numbers being recalled are:

  • 01451CCYA
  • 01451CDGI
  • 01451CDGJ

You can find your model number on a sewn-in label, on the back of the stroller at the upper side of the backrest. Approximately 5,787 units of the recalled stroller were sold in retail stores across Canada, and approximately 20,000 units were sold in the United States. The recalled strollers were sold from May 2015 to June 2016.

What to do if your stroller is being recalled
Immediately stop using the recalled stroller with the infant carrier/car seat and contact Dorel Juvenile Canada for a free repair kit. Call phone at 1-866-762-3036 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST or by email.
