Britax Child Safety Inc., has refused to recall or repair a jogging stroller that has caused multiple injuries in children and adults.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has filed a complaint against Britax to prevent anyone from further injuries.
The CPSC received several reports of injuries occurring while using Britax’s BOB jogging stroller. Consumers reported that the stroller’s front wheel is not secure and can detach from the stroller while in motion. Children have suffered injuries including: concussions, dental injuries, contusions and abrasions. Adults have also suffered injuries such as fractured bones, torn ligaments, contusions and abrasions.
The CPSC has filed the complaint against Britax in hopes of having the company recall the stroller and fix the issue.
The three-wheel jogging strollers are part of a 17-model lineup. The affected models include: Ironman, Ironman Duallie, Revolution, Revolution CE, Revolution Flex, Revolution Flex Duallie, Revolution Pro, Revolution Pro Duallie, Revolution SE, Revolution SE Demo, Revolution SE Duallie, Revolution SE Duallie Plus, Revolution SE Plus, Sport Utility Stroller, Stroller Strides, Stroller Strides Duallie and SUS Duallie.
If you own any of the above strollers, please check that the front wheel is secure or discontinue use of the stroller to prevent an injury.
