Baby Jogger Recalls 30,200 Stroller Car Seat Adaptors

If you have a car seat adaptor for your Baby Jogger stroller, you’re going to want to check it as Baby Jogger recalled 30,200 of their car seat adaptors in all three models, the “Single,” “Double,” and “Select”. These adaptors are used to secure various infant car seats to Baby Jogger strollers. The car seat adaptors consist of two U-shaped, black, aluminum support bars and two black plastic adaptors that allow the support bars to attach onto the stroller. Black nylon straps secure the car seat to the adaptor on the stroller. The black support bars are labeled A and B.  The A support bar is the larger of the two U-shaped bars and has a red plastic tip with 10 holes.
