Stokke offers a stroller repair service after recalling product

Some Stokke strollers, known as “Gangnam strollers” in Korea due to their expensive price, were recalled overseas due to flaws on their handle grips.

Stokke Korea said Sunday that it has recalled 1,901 units of the company’s latest model, Stokke Trailz, since Dec. 19 and that the recall was 80 percent complete.

The company said none of the 1,901 units were sold in Korea but that it will provide a free repair service if damage is found. It started selling the model in Korea in February for 1.74 million won ($1,599).

Stokke Korea said the recalled products were sold in Europe, the United States, Mexico and South Africa and that the products that came into the country had no problems. The Korea Consumer Agency said, however, that there is a possibility Koreans might have purchased the item from overseas via the Internet and suggested Stokke Korea provide a free repair service.
