UPPAbaby Strollers Recalled Over Amputation Risk; Child Injury Reported
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission , this recall affects all UPPAbaby all-terrain RIDGE jogging strollers, which have an extendable canopy with a mesh window and zipper pocket, disc hand brake system and an adjustable handlebar with a wrist strap.
"The stroller’s rear disc brakes have openings that can cause amputation or laceration if a non-occupant child’s fingertip gets caught in the openings while the stroller is in use," CPSC said. "The firm has received one reported incident, resulting in a fingertip amputation to a child who was not in the stroller while in use."
"UPPAbaby" is printed on the front of the recalled strollers, and "RIDGE" is on the side of the stroller frame. Affected strollers have a black frame and a fabric color scheme that is white (“BRYCE”), charcoal (“JAKE”), or slate blue (“REGGIE”) and have black tires.
The serial numbers of the recalled UPPAbaby strollers begin with “1401RDGUS,” and appear on the right side of the stroller frame above the rear wheel of the stroller. The model number “1401-RDG-US” is printed on the left side of the stroller frame above the rear wheel of the stroller.
Affected strollers were sold online and at BuyBuyBaby, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Pottery Barn Kids and other children’s stores and specialty stores nationwide from October 2021 through August 2022 for about $600.
If you purchased a jogging stroller that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact UPPAbaby to receive free replacement brake discs for both wheels.
This recall began on September 1, 2022.
