On October 11, 2011, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with B.O.B. Trailers Inc. has announced a voluntary recall of B.O.B. single and double strollers. The stroller canopy’s embroidered logo’s backing patch can detach, posing a choking hazard to babies and young children. The firm has received six reports of children mouthing the detached patch. Gagging and choking were reported in two incidents. The backing was removed from the children’s mouth without injury. In all of the reported incidents the children were seated in infant car seats attached to the stroller. This recall involves all B.O.B. strollers manufactured between November 1998 and November 2010. Strollers manufactured after October 2006 have a white label, indicating the manufacturing date, affixed to the back of the strollers leg. Strollers with no manufacturing date listed are included in this recall.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers until they remove the embroidered backing patch from the interior of the canopy’s logo. Consumers can contact B.O.B. Trailers Inc. for instructions on how to remove the backing.
