A defective hinge is the cause of a recall affecting about 850 phil&teds strollers sold in the U.S. and Canada.

The hinge used to fold the dash v5 stoller can become damaged as the stroller is opened and closed for use, posing a pinch hazard to the parent or caregiver. The company has received one report of the hinge joint separating, but no injuries have been reported.

The recall includes the dash5 buggy-style stroller with serial numbers ranging between PTRV 0715/0746 and PTRV 0815/2525. The serial number is printed on the lower left rear cradle, next to the identification label.

For a list of colors and model numbers included in the recall, visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) website.

The stroller was sold at Baby Street, Dainty Baby, Mega Babies and other baby product and specialty stores nationwide and online from August 2015 through April 2016 for about $550.

Parents and caregivers should stop using the stroller and contact the company to have the frame replaced free of charge.
