Baby Jogger City Versa™ strollers have been recalled by the manufacturer, Baby Jogger LLC. This recall affects approximately 8,400 strollers in the U.S. – and more than 2,000 in Canada.
The recall was sparked after it was alerted to the possibility of the stroller frame failing to lock and collapsing while in use, posing a potential fall hazard in children. The company received six reports of the stroller’s frame failing to lock, but no injuries have been reported.
The recall includes all Baby Jogger City Versa™ model strollers made 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 at 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.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Baby Jogger for a free replacement stroller frame.
