Fall Hazard and Potential Injuries Prompts Massive Stroller Recall
Britax announces the recall of 676,000 strollers following numerous reports of injuries to children after their car seat carriers disconnected from their strollers without warning. The affected models include the Britax B-Agile and BOB Motion Strollers with the Click & Go receiver feature.
All affected models are folding strollers with Click & Go receiver mounts where car seat carriers attach to the stroller frame. The recall includes both single and double occupant strollers of all colors.
The strollers were sold in retailers and online nationwide including Babies R Us, buy buy Baby, Target, Toys R Us, and Amazon.com, among other retailers. The strollers sold for between $250 and $470 from May 2011 through February 2017.
Britax recommends consumers stop using the Click & Go receiver mounts for single strollers until they contact Britax for a free repair kit and repair the receiver mounts. Unfortunately, double occupant strollers cannot be repaired and Britax warns consumers to stop using the strollers with the car seats attached.
Consumers may use either the stroller or the car seat separately but not with the car seat attached to the stroller without risk of injury from falling.
For single occupant strollers, the model number is located near the right rear wheel of the stroller on the inside of the metal frame. Double stroller model numbers are found on the underside of the frame in the front middle of the stroller.
Recalled stroller model numbers include:
