    Recall alert: Britax strollers

    The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Britax are recalling two of their stroller models, both of which have been in the market since 2011. The two strollers are the B-Agile and BOB Motion Strollers with click-and-go receivers. The recall comes after 33 incidents of strollers unexpectedly disconnecting from the stroller component and falling to the ground — 26 of the 33 cases resulted in injuries such as scratches, bruises, cuts, and bumps to the head. According to the CPSC, “a damaged receiver mount on the stroller can cause the car seat to disengage and fall unexpectedly, posing a fall hazard to infants in the car seat.” The issue arises when the strollers are in travel system mode, wherein the car seat component is attached to the stroller frame using click-and-go receivers. Since the strollers have been sold for quite some time now, the commission estimates that about 676,000 of these strollers have been sold in the U.S., with an additional 40,000 or so sold outside the U.S. Check here for the specific list of model numbers.
