B.O.B. Trailers Inc., has issued a recall of about 438,000 jogging strollers (411,700 in the United States and 27,000 in Canada) because the stroller canopy’s embroidered logo’s backing patch can detach, posing a choking hazard to babies and young children.
The recall involves all B.O.B. strollers manufactured between November 1998 and November 2010. These strollers were sold at Babiesrus.com, Target.com, Amazon.com, REI, Buy Buy Baby, and other stores nationwide between November 1998 and October 2011.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers until they remove the embroidery backing patch from the interior of the canopy’s logo. Contact B.O.B. Trailers Inc. for instructions on removing the backing.
357,000 of these units were recalled in February 2011 due to a strangulation hazard posed by the canopy drawstring. This is a separate recall.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is the federal agency charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death from thousands of types of consumer products. Its website is an invaluable source of information about recalls and other consumer product safety information.
