The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, issued a recall involving the Baby Jogger City Versa Strollers. Over 8,400 in the United States and 2,200 in Canada were recalled as the stroller frame can fail to lock in place and collapse while in use, posing a fall hazard to children in the stroller.
Baby Jogger has received six reports of incidents with the stroller’s frame failing to lock. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves all Baby Jogger City Versa™ model strollers manufactured between May 15 and August 20, 2012. The date of manufacture is printed on the stroller’s black plastic side hinge below “Baby Jogger” and “City Versa.” “City Versa” is also printed on the stroller’s fabric in the child’s leg area. The strollers have charcoal-colored metal frames with black, silver, red or green fabric stroller seats and canopies.
The strollers were sold in buybuy Baby and other juvenile product stores nationwide and online at buybuybaby.com, albeebaby.com, diapers.com and other online retailers from July 2012 through October 2012 for about $450.
