B.O.B. Jogging Stroller Recall

Posted by admin

Moms on the run need to be aware – roughly 350,000 B.O.B. jogging strollers are being recalled across the US and Canada.

The issue identified in the recall is with a drawstring used to tie back the stroller’s canopy.  There is a risk that a child may become entangled in the string, which could lead to strangulation. To date, one incident has been reported, in which an 11-month-old baby girl became tangled in the drawstring. The child’s mother was able to free her daughter before serious injury occurred.

11 models of B.O.B. strollers are being recalled - including models from the Sports Utility line, Revolution line and more - and can be identified by the yellow / orange drawstring used to collect the canopy material. The company’s name can be found on the stroller’s cargo basket and on the front cloth panel, while serial numbers can be found stamped on the frame or on a label on the rear right leg of the stroller.

 A complete list of models and serial number ranges, as well as images and other details of the recall, can be found on the US Consumer Product Safety Commission website and the Health Canada website.

Owners of the models listed in the recall are advised to stop using the strollers immediately and remove the drawstring from their units. A corrective retrofit canopy kit can be ordered free of charge on B.O.B.’s website, www.bobcanopy.com, or by contacting B.O.B. Trailers at (855) 242-2245 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
