Over 30,000 Car Seat Adaptors For Strollers Recalled
Baby Jogger LLC of Richmond, Virginia has agreed to voluntarily recall the car seat adaptor for several Baby Jogger Stroller models due to a fall hazard. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the agency has received some 47 reports of the car seat adaptors failing and the car seats falling to the floor. Two infants were injured, suffering head and foot injuries.
The car seat adaptors are supposed to secure infant car seats onto Baby Jogger Strollers. The recalled models include the “Single,” “Double,” and “Select/Versa” models manufactured between April 1, 2012 and Sept 20, 2012. Newer models that have a different support bar configuration are not being recalled.
About 23,700 of the units have been recalled in the United States and 6,500 units have been recalled in Canada.
The products were sold at Buy Baby and other stores nationwide. Online retailers that sold the products were: albeebaby.com, amazon.com, buybuybaby.com, and diapers.com — among other online retailers. The single adaptor sold for about $60 and the double adaptor went for approximately $100.
The CPSC urges consumers to immediately stop using the affected car seat adaptors and to contact Baby Jogger for free replacement support bars.
