B.O.B. Jogging Strollers Under Voluntary Recall Due to Choking Hazard

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

The popular stroller brand B.O.B. has issued a voluntary recall of single and double strollers more than 411,000 single and double jogging strollers in the United States and 27,000 in Canada, the company announced this week.

The recall stems from the embroidery backing patch, which the Consumer Product Safety Commission says can become detached and pose a choking hazard to children.  The agency received several complaints from parents, two of which involved a child gagging or choking on the detached backing.

Consumers are advised to remove the backing patch before using the stroller.  Parents can visit http://bobnotices.com/ for details on the recall, including photos of the patch and instructions on how to remove it.

In February, the company issued a similar voluntary recall for stroller models that had drawstrings on their canopies, which posed a strangulation hazard to children.
