B.O.B. Trailers Recalls Jogging Strollers

Comments Off

A strangulation hazard has prompted the voluntary recall of B.O.B. single and double strollers in the United States and Canada.

The recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and involves 337,000 units in the U.S. and 20,000 in Canada.

To date, the agency has received one report of an 11-month-old child who became entangled at the neck by the stroller’s drawstring. The child’s mother was able to free her.

A total of 11 models of B.O.B. single and double strollers are included in the recall. A list of model numbers involved in the recall can be found on the CPSC Web site, along with photos.

Consumers should stop using the recalled strollers and remove the drawstring immediately.

If using a separately purchased Weather Shield or Sun Shield accessory with the recalled stroller, contact B.O.B. Trailers for a free canopy retrofit kit.

For more information about ordering a replacement part or regarding the recall, contact B.O.B Trailers at (855) 242-2245 or visit them online at www.bobcanopy.com.

In January, phil&teds brand jogging strollers were recalled to finger amputation risk after they received three reports of injury to adults using the strollers, two of lacerations and another of fingertip amputation.
