WASHINGTON (AP) — Peg Perego recalled hundreds of thousands of strollers Tuesday because children can become trapped and strangled between trays on them. One death has already been reported.
A six-month-old boy from Tarzana, Calif. died of strangulation in a stroller
in 2004, while a seven-month-old girl from New York was nearly strangled in
2006, according to Peg Perego USA Inc. The company said entrapment and
strangulation can take place, particularly among those younger than a year old,
when the child is not harnessed into the stroller. If unharnessed, children can
pass through the opening between the tray and the seat bottom and the child's
neck and head can become trapped by the tray.
Peg Perego is recalling approximately 223,000 strollers, which include Venezia
and Pliko-P3 strollers in various colors, made between January 2004 and
Only strollers with a child tray and one cup holder are part of the recall. Strollers with a bumper bar in front of the child or a tray with two cup holders are not included in this recall.
The company said the strollers were made before a voluntary industry standard was implemented in January 2008 that addresses the height of the opening between the stroller's tray and the seat bottom. The voluntary standard requires larger stroller openings that prevent
infant entrapment and strangulation hazards. The model numbers are:

(Deming) -- Deming Public Schools held its first-ever Elementary Career Day Monday at the Mimbres Valley Learning and Special Events Center.
School Superintendent Harvielee Moore said the event was the idea of a fourth-grader last year who wrote to Moore suggesting it would be a good idea for fifth graders to participate in a career day to begin learning about career options and what skills and education levels were needed for each.
The student, Andres Reyes, chaired a steering committee convened by Moore which was comprised of a fifth-grade boy and girl from each elementary school. The students represented the 484 fifth graders in the district.
Moore said the students planned the event, named the careers they were interested in learning more about, and agreed that each school would prepare career collages as part of their studies in the classroom.
The committee members also designed a tee-shirt which each of the fifth-graders in the district wore to the event. The shirt slogan said: "Fifth Grade, the Future" on the front... and "The future is near..." with a Charlie Wildcat wearing a graduation cap and leaning on the words "Wildcats 2019" on the back.
Career presenters included the Southern Area Health Education Center... DeLaney and Hernandez, Attorneys at Law... High Desert Veterinary Clinic... Deming Police Department... McReynolds Family Chiropractic... Deming Fire Department... Rick Holdridge with the New Mexico Space Port Authority... Mark Vasconcellos, Move Production... and Mary Anderson and the Skills U-S-A students.
