Before you go out on the paths in the park to jog with your little one, note that a recall of jogging strollers has been issued. Be sure to check your wheels before heading out. Yesterday, B.O.B. Trailers Inc., announced a voluntary recall of about 411,000 B.O.B.® single and double strollers due to a choking hazard. The stroller canopy’s embroidered logo’s backing patch can detach, posing a choking hazard to babies and young children. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
This recall follows a February recall of 357,000 B.O.B. jogging strollers due to a strangulation hazard posed by canopy drawstring.
The recalled strollers were sold in single seat and double-seat models for $280 to $600 at REI, Babies R’ Us, Amazon.com and other children’s product and sporting goods stores between November 1998 and October 2011. The strollers were manufactured between November 1998 and November 2010. The B.O.B. Ironman or Stroller Strides brand is embroidered on the stroller canopy.
Consumers should remove the logo backing. For more information consumers can call B.O.B. Trailers at 855-242-2245 or visit www.bobnotices.com.
