RECALL: Target has recalled 21 models of ‘SmarTrike’

Target has issued a product safety recall for 21 models of tricycle strollers.

‘SmarTrikes’ share some of the features of a stroller, though because they don’t have a parking break, weren’t able to meet the Mandatory Safety Stand for strollers.

Customers who have purchased one of these trikes from Target, are being urged to immediately return the trike stroller to any Target store, with or without a receipt, for a refund.


“When used as a stroller to transport children, the product may cause injury to a child if the product rolls in an uncontrolled manner or if the child falls out of the product,” the hazard warning reads.

There are a variety of different models that were sold between 2007 and July last year that are being recalled.

Target stopped selling ‘SmarTrikes’, when the investigation commenced last year.
