The car seat adaptor support bars can fail, posing a fall hazard to children. Baby Jogger has received 47 reports of the car seat adaptor supports bars failing and car seats falling to the floor. Reports include two injured infants with bruises to the head and toes.
About 23,700 units in the United States and 6,500 in Canada are included in the recall. The car seat adapters come in three models and are used to secure a variety of infant car seats onto Baby Jogger strollers. The "Single" model fits all single strollers, the "Double" works only on double strollers and the "Select/Versa" fits Select and Versa strollers. The car seat adaptors consist of two U-shaped, black, aluminum support bars and two black plastic adapters that allow the support bars to attach onto the stroller. Black nylon straps secure the car seat to the adapter on the stroller. The black support bars are labeled A and B. The A support bar is the larger of the two U-shaped bars and has a red plastic tip with 10 holes.
Newer models have only four holes and are not being recalled. The model number is located on the lower right hand corner of the original package and the manufacturing date can be found on a sticker on the bottom of the package. The car seat adaptors were manufactured between April 1, 2012 and September 20, 2012.
