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.
The recall involves about 216,000 Britax B-Agile, B-Agile Double, and BOB Motion strollers. The single and double strollers were sold in various color schemes, including black, red, kiwi, sandstone, navy and orange.

The model number and the manufacture date in YYYY/MM/DD format can be found on label located on the inside of the stroller's metal frame near the right rear wheel.
