FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Originally issued December 16, 1988; Revised August 27, 2001 Release # 88-111 Century Recalling E-Z Go Strollers WASHINGTON -- Century Products Company, of Macedonia, Ohio voluntarily recalled some 14,600 umbrella strollers to correct mechanical problems. Undertaken in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the recall involves three strollers sold nationally: model numbers 11-066DI and 11-077SA sold under the E-Z Go brand name, and model number 11-074SR sold by Sears as an "Infant Umbrella-Style Stroller. Model numbers are found on the instruction sheet and on the stroller's legs. All strollers were distributed between January and May, 1988. Century Products Company said seat backs and a rear locking brace may not perform properly. When a toddler strapped in the stroller leans too far forward, or if the stroller comes to an abrupt stop, the child may fall forward and strike his head. Also, when the person pushing the stroller accidentally kicks the rear locking brace, the stroller will fold on the child whose fingers could be pinched as the adult attempts to re-open the stroller. Consumers having the stroller should stop using the product and discard or destroy the product. The return program is no longer available.
