Strollers Recalled Over Choking Hazard
B.O.B Trailers have recalled their jogging strollers due to a possible choking hazard, according to recent news sources.
About 411,000 strollers are subject to recall. The issue is with the embroidered logo on the inside of the canopy, which has been proven to detach. Six different reports were filed with B.O.B of such an incident occurring. Two of the reports described gagging and choking, but the patch was removed before further damage was done.
The strollers came in single and double seat models and retailed for about $280 to $600 at REI, Amazon.com, Babies R’ Us, and other sporting goods and children’s stores. The strollers were sold from November 1998 to October 2011. On the stroller canopy, B.O.B Ironman or Stroller Strides is embroidered.
Consumers should remove the logo backing that poses the threat before using it again.
