After a mother reported that her 11-month-old daughter’s neck became entangled with the stroller’s drawstring, more than 350,000 BOB strollers across the U.S. and Canada have been recalled.
At least 11 different models — both single and double strollers — are included in the recall.
The strollers being recalled have a yellow/orange drawstring in the back used to gather the fabric when the canopy is pulled back. A serial number can be found on the stroller’s rear right leg.
They were sold since April 2002 by REI, buybuy BABY, Babiesrus.com, Target.com and Amazon.com.
If you have one of the recalled strollers, the CPSC urges that you stop using it and remove the drawstring. If you bought the “Weather Shield” or “Sun Shield” accessory with the recalled stroller, you'll need to contact BOB for a free canopy retrofit kit.
Consumers who want more information or to order a canopy retrofit kit can call BOB at 855-242-2245 weekdays between 10:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. EST or visit the company’s recall site.
