The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Heath Canada announced a voluntary recall by Baby Jogger, LLC of Richmond, Virginia for their Baby Jogger City Versa strollers due to a fall hazard. Approximately 8,400 Baby Jogger strollers were sold in the U.S., as well as about 2,200 sold in Canada.
The stroller frame can fail to lock in place and collapse while in use, posing a fall hazard to a child in the stroller.
Baby Jogger has received six reports of incidents with the stroller’s frame failing to lock. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves all Baby Jogger City Versa model strollers manufactured between May 15th and August 20, 2012. The date of manufacture is printed on the stroller’s black plastic side hinge just below “Baby Jogger” and “City Versa” is also printed on the stroller’s fabric in the child’s leg area. The strollers have charcoal-colored metal frames with black, silver, red or green fabric stroller seats and canopies.
These Baby Joggers strollers were sold at buybuy Baby and other juvenile product stores nationwide. They were also sold online at buybuybaby.com, albeebaby.com, diapers.com and other online retailers from July 2012 through October 2012 for a cost of approximately $450. These strollers were manufactured in China.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Baby Jogger City Versa strollers and contact Baby Jogger for a free replacement stroller frame.
