Just as we report on cool, new baby and kids’ products, it’s also our job to let you know about recalls, especially if they’re about an item we originally reviewed. Last June, we raved about the Cybex line of umbrella strollers. In accordance with the CPSC, the company’s U.S. distributor has issued a recall of its Cybex Ruby, Onyx and Topaz models. The strollers’ hinge mechanism may pose a threat to a child if he places his fingertip inside the hinge. If you’ve purchased one of these Cybex strollers, you can contact Regal Lager for a free hinge cover retrofit kit.
