B.O.B. Trailers Inc., of Boise, Idaho announced a voluntary recall of B.O.B. Single and Double Strollers because the stroller canopy's embroidered logo's backing patch can detach, posing a choking hazard to babies and young children. This recall involves all B.O.B. strollers manufactured between November 1998 and November 2010. Strollers manufactured after October 2006 have a white label affixed to the back of the stroller's leg with the manufacturing date. Strollers with no manufacturing date listed were produced prior to October 2006 and are included in this recall. The strollers were sold in single seat and double-seat models. The BOB, Ironman or Stroller Strides brand name is embroidered on the canopy of the strollers. The affected strollers were sold at REI, Babies R' Us and other children's product and sporting goods stores nationwide and on Amazon.com between November 1998 and October 2011 for between $280 and $600.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers until they remove the embroidery backing patch from the interior of the canopy's logo. Consumers should contact B.O.B.
