Update: Britax Recalls Modified BOB Jogging Strollers Over Severe Injury Hazard
July 30, 2019 – Britax has issued a recall for about 200 thru-bolt axles for BOB Jogging Strollers due to a risk of injury for adults and children, according to a recall notice issued Thursday by the CPSC on Thursday. The problem is that the axles have been found to fracture and break, causing the wheel to detach from the stroller and severely injure child passengers and even the adults pushing them.
The modified thru-bolt axle was initially distributed between January and April 2019 to about 200 consumers who had purchased BOB Jogging Strollers, because the original axle had the same problem. Britax sent replacement axles to affected consumers to fix the problem, but now the replacement axles are being recalled for the very same reason.
Britax has received at least 8 reports of the modified thru-bolt fracturing, CPSC said. If you received a replacement thru-bolt axle from Britax, you should stop using it immediately. Britax is providing a free replacement axle to all affected consumers.
What’s the Problem?
February 17, 2017 – Baby strollers affected by the recall include Britax B-Agile and BOB Motion strollers when they are used with a car seat carrier travel system. The recall includes 676,000 strollers sold in the U.S. and 41,100 units sold in Canada and Mexico.
The recalled strollers are “folding, single or double occupant strollers and have Click & Go receiver mounts that attach the car seat carrier to the stroller frame,” CPSC said. Model numbers can be found on the bottom of the stroller frame.
Britax has received at least:
- 33 reports of car seats detaching from the baby stroller without warning and falling.
- 26 injury reports including scratches, bruises, cuts and bumps to the head.
- 1,337 reports of damage to the Click & Go receiver mount used to connect car seats to the strollers.
Recalled Britax strollers have been sold since May 2011 at retailers across the U.S., including Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby and Target, as well as online at Amazon.com, albeebaby.com and diapers.com.
Britax is advising consumers to stop using these strollers as travel systems immediately, but do not need to return the stroller. The company recommends throwing away the Click & Go receiver and replacing it with a free repair kit.
