Over 700,000 Strollers Recalled By Britax

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a product recall for two kinds of Britax strollers.

The recall concerns the B-Agile and BOB Motion Strollers with click-and-go receivers.

The reason for the recall is that “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.”

Retailers like Target and Babies R Us have stocked the affected strollers since 2011. The CPSC has noted that since that time, about 676,000 of these strollers have been sold in the U.S., 36,400 in Canada and 4,600 in Mexico.

The strollers pose a risk when they are in travel system mode – when the car seat component is attached to the stroller frame using the click and go receivers.

Britax decided to issue the recall after receiving 33 reports of car seats unexpectedly disconnecting from the stroller component and falling to the ground.

26 of the reported cases resulted in injuries like scratches, bruises, cuts and bumps to the head.

There have also been 1,337 reports of strollers that have damaged click and go receiver mounts.

Britax and the CPSC recommend that customers with single B-Agile and BOB Motion strollers, stop using those receiver mounts and ask for a free repair kit from the company.

The CPSC’s recall notice states “Owners of the recalled double strollers should stop using them with car seats attached,”

Britax says that the stroller and car seat components remain safe to use separately.
