700,000 Britax B-Agile and BOB Motion Strollers Recalled Due to Stoller Base Falling
Britax Stroller Company has just issued a recall of more than 700,000 strollers which have the “Click & Go” receiver mounts option. The recall is the result of the car seat detaching from the stroller base and falling off, injuring the infant. The recalled models are the Britax B-Agile and the BOB Motion strollers.
According to a report by the Consumer Product Safety Commision (CPSC), there have already been 33 reports filed wherein the car seat has detached and fell off the stroller. There have also been in excess of 1,300 reports filed that state damages to the part connecting the car seat to the stroller.
The recalled strollers have been sold on the market since 2011. They have been on sale in stores as well as online through major retailers such as Amazon, Toys-R-Us, and Target. The alert requested that consumers immediately stop using the strollers with car seat attached. It is not clear if it is still safe to keep using the stroller without the car seat attached.
A list of recalled stroller models can be found on the CPSCS website or on the Britax recall Website.
“Some products are manufactured in a way that makes them inherently unsafe in order to simply save money during the manufacturing process. Shortcuts cannot be made or lives may be put in danger. Consumer Safety should never be optional,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law Firm.
