Dorel Juvenile has issued a recall on nearly 25,800 Safety 1st Step and Go Travel Systems. The stroller tray folding mechanism can partially disengage on one side when used with an infant car seat attached to the stroller, posing a fall hazard.

The stroller has a step-to-open design that opens by stepping on the pedal. Safety 1st is imprinted on the front of the stroller tray and model number TR314 is printed on a white label on the back of the stroller seat.

The hazardous product was sold at Babies R Us and other retailers nationwide and online at amazon.com, babiesrus.com and Walmart.com. It was available in a variety of colors along with the OnBoard 35 infant car seat.

The company has received 30 reports of the front stroller tray that supports the infant car seat disengaging on one side.

No injuries have been reported, to date.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers with the infant car seat and contact Safety 1st for a free repair kit.

For further information, affected customers can contact Safety 1st at (866) 762-3036.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning the public to keep these products—which contain the active ingredients tetrahydrozoline, oxymetazoline, or naphazoline (known as imidazoline derivatives)—out of the reach of children at all times. The products are sold under various brand names such as Visine, Dristan and Mucinex, as well as in generic and store brands.

For school children across the state of North Carolina and beyond, lunch at school can present itself as a time to eat pizza, cookies, chips, french fries, and other unhealthy options that may not typically be on the menu at home. To help combat the less-than-healthy choices that kids make on their own, many parents choose to pack lunches at home.

Have you ever left or thought about leaving the kids in the car while you make a 'quick stop' at the supermarket, dry cleaner or post office? It only takes a second for your car to shift into gear and rollaway, leaving your kids in tremendous danger.

It'll only be a minute, you say. You crack the windows and lock the car leaving your sleeping infant cozy in her car seat. The problem is that it's never just a minute. It's always longer than that and it only takes 10 minutes for your car to heat up to dangerous temperatures—potentially killing or permanently injuring your child.
