COLUMBUS, IN (WCMH) — More than 25,000 strollers in the U.S. and Canada are being recalled after concerns that a baby can fall out despite being secured.

The recall involves the “Step and Go” Travel Systems sold under the Safety 1st Brand and manufactured by Dorel Juvenile.

The firm says the stroller tray folding mechanism can disengage on one side when used with an infant car seat attached to the stroller, posing a fall hazard.

So far, 30 incidents have been received, but no injuries have been reported.

The strollers were sold at Babies R Us and other retailers nationwide and online at amazon.com, babiesrus.com and Walmart.com from May 2015 through June 2016 for between $250 and $300.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers with the infant car seat and contact Safety 1st  toll-free at 866-762-3036 from 8am to 5pm ET Monday through Friday, email atstepandgo@djgusa.com or online at http://www.safety1st.com and click on “Safety Notices” for more information to receive a free repair kit.
