MIAMI (CBSMIAMI) – Nearly 700-thousand strollers from the Britax Child Safety company have been recalled after more than two dozen children were hurt when the seat section unexpectedly fell.
The recall affects Britax B-Agile and BOB Motion Strollers with Click & Go receivers. The company said a damaged receiver mount on the stroller can cause the car seat to disengage and fall unexpectedly, posing a fall hazard to infants in the car seat.
The recall affects approximately 676,000 strollers sold in the U.S., about 36,400 sold in Canada, and about 4,600 that were sold in Mexico.
The recalled strollers were sold at Babies R Us, buy buy Baby, Target, and other stores nationwide, and online at Amazon.com, albeebaby.com, buybuybaby.com, diapers.com, ToysRUs.com and other websites from May 2011 through February 2017 for between $250 and $470 for the strollers and travel systems.
