Baby carriage recalls are one of the most common types of product recalls.
They are often triggered by faulty materials and components and can be deadly.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has been investigating baby carriage safety since 2016, and this year the agency released a report on the issue.
The safety board concluded that infant carriage recalls “are a significant source of injuries and deaths,” but it also said that they are “often the most effective means of addressing safety deficiencies.”
What are baby carriage recall?
When a baby carriage gets stuck on a curb or in a yard, the baby can be pulled out of the car seat, onto a back seat, or onto the back of the mother’s car seat.
This can cause injuries to the baby.
The baby’s parents can be injured or killed if the carriage gets pulled from the car.
It can also be deadly because the car can fall over and the baby is likely to suffocate if the vehicle does not have adequate seatbelts.
What are infant carriage recall actions?
In 2017, the NTSB announced that it would investigate the safety of infant carriage seatbelters, which were a key safety measure in the U.S. between 1986 and 2016.
The agency issued a report that determined that infant seatbelter safety “is one of several significant risks” that infants face in infant carriage.
The report also said the safety issue was due to “a combination of factors,” including inadequate seatbelting materials and manufacturing processes.
