Baby Bunting recalls six popular toddler trikes

A recall notice has been issued for six popular trikes sold at Baby Bunting, online and instore. 

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), while the six trikes have features of strollers they are unsafe for use transporting children as they do not come with parking brakes, tether straps or warnings.

Should parents use the trikes as a stroller, the ACCC notes that children are at risk of injury if they fall out of the trike, or if the product were to roll "in an uncontrollable manner."
