Product recalled due to choking hazard of steering wheel - is it a Jeep? Not really.

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Kolcraft Enterprises, Inc., of Chicago, Ill. is voluntarily recalling about 17,000 toy steering wheel attachments sold on strollers. The steering wheel can break away from its base, allowing the small plastic turn signal and horn pieces to come off, posing a choking hazard to young children.

Kolcraft has not received any reports of injury involving these strollers. This product is being recalled to prevent the possibility of injury.

The toy steering wheel was sold on Kolcraft's Jeep® Cherokee stroller model number 55120. The model number and "MADE IN CHINA" can be found on a sticker located on one of the rear legs of the stroller. "Jeep" is written with yellow, raised lettering on the front of the steering wheel base. These toys and strollers were manufactured from January 2001 through February 2001. The manufacture date is listed below the model number on the rear leg sticker. Strollers manufactured after February 2001, with toy steering wheels, are not included in this recall.

Mass merchandise and juvenile products stores nationwide sold these strollers from January 2001 through May 2002 for between $80 and $90.

Consumers should remove the toy steering wheel on these strollers and contact Kolcraft to receive a free replacement toy steering wheel. Contact Kolcraft at (800) 453-7673 between 8 a.m. and 6:45 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday and between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. ET on Friday.
