On Tuesday, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced two stroller recalls: about 223,000 Peg Perego strollers and about 5,000 Kolcraft strollers.

The Peg Perego recall includes older models of the Venezia and Pliko-P3 strollers manufactured between January 2004 and September 2007. They pose entrapment and strangulation risks.

Infants younger than 12 months of age are at risk of injury if they’re not harnessed. An opening between the stroller tray and seat bottom allows a child’s body, causing their head and neck to get caught by the tray. Only strollers with a child tray and one cup holder are part of the recall.

The recalled Peg Perego strollers were sold at retail stores including Buy Buy Baby and Babies R Us from January 2004 through September 2010. You can find the model number on a white label on the back of the Pliko P-3’s seat and on the Venezia’s footboard.
