B.O.B. Trailers Inc. recently announced a recall of their single and double strollers. The recall was initiated after the company received six reports of children mouthing the stroller canopy’s embroidered logo patch that became detached. The children were seated in the infant car seat attached to the stroller in each of the reported incidents.
The recalled B.O.B. strollers were manufactured between November 1998 and November 2010. Recalled strollers that were manufactured after October, 2006 have a white label attached to the back of the stroller’s leg with the manufacturing date; strollers produced prior to 2006 do not have a manufacturing date listed and are included in the recall. The recalled strollers may also be identified by the BOB®, Ironman® or Stroller Strides® brand name embroidered on the canopy of the strollers.
Approximately 411,700 single and double-seat stroller models were sold in the United States at REI, Babies R’ Us and other children’s product and sporting goods stores nationwide plus Amazon.com between November 1998 and October 2011 for between $280 and $600.
According to the recall notice, consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers until they remove the embroidery backing patch from the interior of the canopy’s logo. For additional information, or for instructions on removing the backing, consumers may contact B.O.B. trailers toll-free at (855) 242-2245, or visit the company’s website at www.bobnotices.com.
