Approximately 676,000 stroller travel systems that were sold in the U.S. are being recalled because of a damaged receiver mount on the stroller. The damaged mount can cause the car seat to come loose and fall, which could result in harm to the baby. The damaged strollers are manufactured by Britax. The recalled models include Britax B-Agile and BOB Motion Strollers with Click & Go receiver mounts.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, there have been 33 reports of Britax car seats becoming disconnected from the strollers and falling to the ground. In 26 situations, the child inside the seat was injured, receiving bruises, cuts, and bumps on the head. Approximately 1,337 strollers have been found with damaged receiver mounts.
The recalled strollers are folding, and include single and double occupant strollers. All colors of the stroller are included. The strollers were sold at Babies R Us, Amazon, Target, and other nationwide retailers between 2011 and 2017. Anyone with the stroller should stop using it and should contact the company for a free repair kit.This defective stroller is an example of a design defect that resulted in harm to consumers.
