Consumer Tips – Stroller Recalls

The Cartwright Law Firm Consumer Tips – The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada have issued a recall notice related to about 30,000 strollers that have a front wheel that may unexpectedly break off its axle, causing the stroller to tip, creating a potential fall hazard. The strollers were imported by Bumbleride Inc., and are sold under the Indie brand. There have been 36 reports of the wheel cracking, including two reports of strollers tipping over and minor injuries occurring.

Children go to the emergency room about 15,000 times a year because of accidents involving strollers, and there are literally thousands of strollers recalled each year. Parents who decide to purchase used strollers need to be vigilant and check the brand for possible recalls before making their purchase. Some of the manufacturers whose products have faced recent recalls include:

  • The InSTEP – brakes can fail
  • Sport Utility Stroller Deluxe from BOB Trailer – wheels can detach from the frame
  • Ranger & Ranger Quattro from Kolcraft
  • Road Runner from Baby Trend – does not have a secure strap, and child may fall out of stroller.

These are merely a few examples of the kinds of recalls involving strollers. For a more comprehensive list, including dates, serial numbers, etc., go to SafetyBook, who also detail recall and safety warnings on many products.
