A couple of days ago Health Canada issued a recall involving Safety 1st Jogging Strollers with model numbers 01-555CYB and 01-555CSBC. Approximately 22,408 of the recalled strollers were sold in Canada between 2002 to 2005.
If the child is placed in the stroller in the rear-facing mode, their leg can become caught between the wheel and the stroller frame, posing a fracture hazard.
So far, Dorel Distribution Canada has received seven reports of a child’s leg getting caught between the wheel and the stroller’s frame, with six cases resulting in a leg fracture and one case resulting in a sprained ankle. In addition, Health Canada has received four reports of a child’s leg getting caught between the wheel and the stroller’s frame, with one leg fracture.
The affected models were manufactured prior to 2005 and are available in either yellow or blue with black tubing. The seat can flip to allow the child to be rear or front-facing. The model number and date of manufacture are located on a sewn label inside the stroller basket.
It is recommended that you stop using the affected stroller in the rear-facing mode and contact Dorel Distribution Canada to obtain a repair kit. Consumers are also advised to visit Dorel Distribution Canada’s website to determine if their stroller model is included in this recall.
