Britax recalls stroller travel systems

WASHINGTON -- Britax Child Safety, Inc., has recalled certain models of the B-Agile and BOB Motion strollers when used as a travel system following reports of injuries.

Recalled model numbers can be found on the Britax website at https://us.britax.com/recall. All models are folding, single or double occupant strollers and have Click & Go receiver mounts that attach the car seat carrier to the stroller frame. All colors of the stroller are included. The model number can be found on the inside of the stroller’s metal frame near the right rear wheel for single strollers and in the front middle underside of the frame on double strollers.

Britax received reports of damaged Click & Go receiver mounts on the stroller frames causing the attached car seats to unexpectedly disconnect and fall. Some of the reported incidents included minor scratches, bumps and bruises. After investigating the issue, Britax found that damage to the stroller frame can occur when the stroller is stowed or dropped while the Click & Go receivers are still attached.

Consumers should immediately stop using their B-Agile and BOB Motion strollers as a travel system. Owners of the recalled double strollers should stop using them with car seats attached.

Britax said it is safe to use the stroller in the recline-mode for infants, and the company recommends consumers dispose of their existing Click & Go receivers and contact Britax to order a free repair kit for single strollers.
