B.O.B. strollers recalled after near-strangulation

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with B.O.B. Trailers, Inc., of Boise, Idaho, has issued a voluntary recall of 337,000 B.O.B. ® single and double strollers because they pose a strangulation hazard.

According to the CPSC, the recall came after an 11-month-old girl’s neck got tangled up in the stroller’s drawstring. Luckily, her mother was able to free her.

The recalled models include the Sport Utility Stroller, Sport Utility Stroller D’Lux, Ironman® , Sport Utility Duallie, Ironman® Duallie , Revolution, Revolution 12″, Stroller Strides®, Revolution Duallie, Revolutiion Duallie 12″ and the Stroller Strides® Dualie.

The strollers were sold at REI, Babiesrus.com, Target.com and Amazon.com among other retailers.

The company recommends that the drawstring should be removed. The company can be contacted for a free canopy retrofit kit.

For information on the affected models, or to order a canopy retrofit kit, contact B.O.B. Trailers at (855) 242-2245 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at www.bobcanopy.com.
