There have been several consumer recalls over the past couple of days that may affect Deal Seeking Mom readers. Please refer to the links included in each section for more details about the specific recalls:
B.O.B. Single and Double Strollers
A voluntary recall has been issued on B.O.B. Single and Double Strollers because a drawstring on the stroller can get wrapped around a child’s neck, posing a strangulation hazard. This recall involves 11 models of B.O.B. single and double strollers. The name “B.O.B” appears on the cargo basket under the stroller and on the front of the stroller. All of the recalled strollers have a yellow/orange drawstring at the rear of the canopy which is used to gather loose fabric when the canopy is pulled back. Strollers have the serial number either stamped in the frame or on a white label located on the stroller’s rear right leg. For a list of model and serial numbers, go here. The affected strollers were sold at REI, buybuy Baby and other stores nationwide and on the web at Babiesrus.com, Target.com and Amazon.com between April 2002 and February 2011 for between $300 and $600.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and remove the drawstring. If using a separately purchased Weather Shield or Sun Shield accessory with the recalled stroller, contact B.O.B. Trailers for a free canopy retrofit kit. For additional information, or to order a canopy retrofit kit, contact B.O.B. Trailers at 855-242-2245 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website.
