Bumbleride has had to recall their Indie and Indie Twin strollers due to a defect that creates a possible fall hazard.
28,000 units are affected by this recall, which encompasses model numbers I-107, I-110, and I-205 in the single stroller product, and IT-108, IT-111, and IT-305 in the twin stroller set. Both products were produced between January 2009 and August 2011 and were sold at various baby product stores across the country from January 2009 through to last month. They retailed anywhere from $500 to $700.
The problem concerns the front wheel, which can break at the axle hub. This makes it possible for the stroller to tip over and injure the occupant or occupants. There have already been 36 reports of the front wheel cracking, including two in which minor injuries occurred.
Consumers are advised to cease usage of the products and contact Bumbleride for a free wheel retrofit kit.
As a Ventura personal injury attorney, I understand that just about any method of conveyance can pose a hazard to consumers, even a stroller. It’s unfortunate that two injuries already occurred as a result of the described defect, but it’s my hope as a personal injury lawyer in Long Beach that word of the recall reaches affected consumers before more incidents can transpire.
