Heidi Klum pushchair product liability concern

24th October 2013

That’s why Heidi Klum is unlikely to take kindly to the news that the Heidi Klum Truly Scrumptious Travel System stroller has been deemed a product liability risk, with Consumer Reports issuing a “Don’t Buy” Safety Risk notice for the product.

Worryingly for the Heidi Klum brand, of more than one-hundred strollers covered by the ratings, the Truly Scrumptious was the only one to be deemed a potential product liability compensation claim risk, with its stroller harness straps being ruled as unreliable during product safety tests.

The tests are pretty routine – they are performed every year. “The buckle’s right side released 10 out of 15 times in CR’s tests on three separate samples – three times during five tests with one sample, in two out of five tests with a second sample, and in all five tests with a third sample,” said the organisation through a press release.

This is a big deal – falls are the biggest risk associated with pushchairs and prams, with around 75 percent of the US’s 46,200 pushchair and pram-related injuries occurring because of falls, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Of these falls, some prove serious and in many cases those affected instruct personal injury solicitors to make child accident compensation claims. Klum is not going to want bad press or product liability claims. But as a mother, we are willing to bet that she is most concerned about the risk of child injury. Expect any problems to be rectified, and soon.
