Fri, Apr 8, 20111:52:47 PM

Britax is recalling more than 200,000 of its strollers, the B-Agile, B-Agile Double and BOB Motion, for safety concerns.  The hinge on the stroller’s folding mechanism can partially amputate consumers’ fingertips, break their fingers or cause severe lacerations, among other injuries, when they press the release button while pulling on the release strap.

Britax has received eight incident reports. Incidents include one partial fingertip amputation, one broken finger and severe finger lacerations.

Britax is offering a repair kit for customers.   You can obtain more info by contacting the company.  Britax at (866) 204-1665, online at www.britaxusa.com  or www.bobgear.com and click on “Safety Notice”.
