A popular line of strollers is being recalled because of a potential falling hazard.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that Mamas & Papas has issued a voluntary recall of its Armadillo Flip Strollers.

A loose latch can allow the seat to tip back which poses a falling hazard to infants.

About 3,000 strollers have been sold. There have been 10 reports of the seats falling back.

No children have been hurt.

The company is instructing parents to stop using the stroller and send it to them for repair. Officials said it hopes to return the stroller to owners within two weeks.

They were sold at Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby and Amazon among other retailers from December 2014 through July. The strollers cost between $500 and $550.

The recalled strollers have lot codes 00814 to 00416 for the Armadillo Flip and 01214 to 00416 for the Armadillo Flip XT.

For more information, as well as information on where to send the strollers for repair, consumers can call Mamas & Papas at 800-309-6312 or visit the company’s website and click on the button that says “Voluntary Recall Notice” in the upper left corner.
