The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada have recalled B.O.B.® single and double jogging strollers. The stroller canopy’s embroidered logo’s backing patch can detach, posing a choking hazard to babies and young children.
About 411,700 in the United States and 27,000 in Canada are included in the jogging strollers recall. Around 357,000 units were recalled in February 2011 due to strangulation hazard posed by canopy drawstring.
This recall involves all B.O.B. strollers manufactured between November 1998 and November 2010. The BOB®, Ironman® or Stroller Strides® brand name is embroidered on the canopy of the strollers.
Consumers should stop using the recalled strollers until they remove the embroidery backing patch from the interior of the canopy’s logo.
