Kelty Recalls Single & Double Jogging Strollers Due To Fall & Injury Hazards
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall for Kelty Single and Double Jogging Strollers. About 3,000 of the strollers are being recalled do to the issue of the front wheel coming loose during use, thus causing the stroller to tip over, posing a fall and injury hazard to children in the stroller and adults pushing the stroller. So far, there have been three reported incidents with these recalled strollers, including cuts, scrapes and fractured bones to adults, and minor cuts and scrapes to children.
This recall involves Kelty Speedster Swivel Deluxe single jogging strollers and Swivel Deuce double jogging strollers. The strollers have an aluminum frame and a cloth seat with a canopy. They were sold in color combinations blue/gray and orange/gray. “Kelty Kids” is embroidered on the front of the stroller in the child’s leg area.
The model number and stroller name are printed on a tag inside the stroller’s seat area.
