The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, have issued a voluntary recall today for Baby Jogger’s Jump Seats after receiving four reports of children falling from the seat, resulting in scrapes, bruises, cuts and one broken nose. If the Jump Seat does not properly lock into place, it can easily disengage from the stroller allowing the child to fall out. Around 1,545 seats in the U.S. and 450 in Canada are involved in this recall.
The Baby Jogger Jump Seat is a fabric seat accessory with the name “Baby Jogger” on the front, and attaches to the mounting bracket on the frame of a Baby Jogger City Elite, Baby Jogger City Classic or Baby Jogger Summit stroller. This accessory allows a toddler and baby to ride together in the same stroller at the same time.
Item #J7J50 is printed on the packaging and the items were sold in Juvenile products stores, mass merchandisers, department stores nationwide and on the Web from January 2008 through July 2010 for about $100. If you own one of these seats, the recommendation is to stop using it immediately and contact Baby Jogger to receive Jump Seat safety straps and assembly instructions.
