The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a final rule approving a federal mandatory standard intended to improve the safety of infant and child carriages and strollers. The rule incorporates a voluntary ASTM International standard with a change to address the risk that children’s heads could become trapped in adjustable grab bars. Observing that four stroller-related fatalities and 359 injuries occurred between 2008 and 2012, mostly due to wheel, parking brake and lock-mechanism problems, CPSC asserts that the standard aims to “prevent hingerelated issues that have caused finger amputations and other injuries” and addresses broken and detached wheels, parking brake failures, product stability, and other safety issues. The revision takes effect September 10, 2015, and manufacturers and sellers will have 18 months to comply. See Federal Register, March 10, 2014.
