Australia FlagAustralia/Canberra: Babyco, a South Morang, Victoria establishment, recalls certain batch/lots of Baby Factory (NZ) branded Q Play Rito Folding Trikes from the Australian marketplace due to suspected failure to comply with Australia’s mandatory standard ‘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 falls, laceration, bone fracture and/or concussion, all serious safety hazards.

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

  • Q Play Rito Folding Trike, an adaptable Stroller/Tricycle for children aged 12 months to 36 months. The product features an extendable parent handle, reclining high-back padded seat, 5-point harness, detachable safety surround, handlebar clutch, extendable UV protection canopy, rear storage basket, foldable footrest, push bar bag and rear brake.

==> No barcodes, APNs, UPCs, DINs, item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the ACCC, Q Play Rito Folding Trikes have some of the features of a Baby Stroller, but are reportedly unsafe for use as a Stroller to transport children because they do not have the safety features required under Australia’s mandatory standard ‘Consumer Product Safety Standard for Prams and Strollers (Consumer Protection Notice No 8 of 2007, as amended on 14 February 2019)’.

Specifically, the waist strap is not permanently fixed as required nor is there a tether strap as required. In addition, there are incorrect warning labels in violation of the applicable legislation. Consequently, you should not use this product to place nor transport your child. If used as a Stroller to transport children, these products may cause injury to a child if the product rolls in an uncontrolled manner or if the child falls out of the product.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Baby Factory (NZ) branded Q Play Rito Folding Trikes, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to Babyco, Axis Lifestyle Centre, 4/795 Plenty Rd, South Morang, Victoria for a full refund.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 0-0-0, your closest hospital or emergency centre equipped to properly treat laceration, bone fracture, eye injury and/or concussion.
