Australia FlagAustralia/Canberra: BIG W, a Bella Vista, New South Wales establishment, recalls certain batch/lots of SmarTrike Children’s Trike/Stroller products due to suspected failure to provide a parking brake, tether strap or relevant warnings as required by Australia’s mandatory regulation, ‘Consumer Product Safety Standard for Prams and Strollers (Consumer Protection Notice No 8 of 2007, as amended on 14 February 2019)’ and consequential risks of fall and injury, all serious health and safety hazards.

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Children’s Trike products are subject to this recall:

  • BIG W branded 21 SmarTrike Children’s Tricycle/Strollers, sold with a BIG W PRA number of 2019/17376 between 1 January 2007 to 28 February 2019 at BIG W stores and at http://www.bigw.com.au

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s design and retail presentation. One (1) additional image of the recalled Children’s Trike/Stroller products can be found on the Web site above.

According to the ACCC, these SmarTrike products have some of the features of a traditional Baby Stroller, but are unsafe for use for this purpose as they do not have a parking brake, tether strap or relevant warnings as required by Australian mandatory standard ‘Consumer Product Safety Standard for Prams and Strollers (Consumer Protection Notice No 8 of 2007, as amended on 14 February 2019)’. Consequently, using these products as a Baby Stroller may pose fall and injury risks to the child rider.

When used as a stroller to transport children, the product may cause injury to a child if the product rolls in an uncontrolled manner or if the child falls out of the vehicle.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Children’s Trikes, please do not use them nor allow your child to ride or play with or near them. Instead, kindly return the product to the BIG W store where you purchased it for a full refund.
