B.O.B. Recalls Jogging Strollers

Comments Off

Single and double strollers by B.O.B have been voluntarily recalled in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in the U.S. and Canada due to a strangulation hazard posed by the canopy’s embroidered logo backing patch which can detach.

The recall involves 411,700 strollers in the U.S. and 27,000 in Canada. In February, some 357,000 units were recalled due to a strangulation hazard posed by a drawstring attached to the canopy.

To this date, there have been six reported incidents of the patch detaching and small children putting the piece in their mouth. In two incidents the children were gagging and choking. The children were in an infant seat attached to stroller in each incident.

The recall involves 11 B.OB. Stroller models manufactured from November 1998 to November 2010. They were sold at Babies R’ Us, REI and other children’s product stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com among other retailers.

Consumers are urged to stop using the recalled strollers until the embroidery patch can be removed. For more information regarding this recall, please call B.O.B direct at (855) 242-2245. Alternatively, you can visit them online at www.bobnotices.com.
