Recalled: 8,400 Baby City Versa Strollers for Falling Hazard

Some strollers have collapsed while in use, posing a fall hazard to children in the stroller.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall for 8,400 Baby Jogger City Versa Strollers nationwide due to a potential falling hazard.

The strollers are responsible for collapsing six times while children were inside, according to NBC 4 Los Angeles.

Virgina-based Baby Jogger LLC sold the strollers nationwide between July and October of this year at buybuy Baby and other children’s product stores and buybuybaby.com, albeebaby.com, diapers.com and other online retailers.

Baby Jogger has received six reports of the $450 stroller’s frame failing to lock and collapsing. However, no injuries have been reported.

This recall involves all Baby Jogger City Versa model strollers manufactured between May 15 and August 20, 2012. The date of manufacture is printed on the stroller’s black plastic side hinge below “Baby Jogger” and “City Versa.” “City Versa” is also printed on the stroller’s fabric in the child’s leg area. The strollers have charcoal-colored metal frames with black, silver, red or green fabric stroller seats and canopies.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Baby Jogger for a free replacement stroller frame at (877) 506-2213, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or at babyjogger.com and click on “Recall Information” at the bottom of the page, or email at recall@babyjogger.com.
