After several reports that the stroller frame has failed to lock, Baby Jogger has voluntary recalled the City Versa stroller.
What's the Deal?
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Baby Jogger LLC, of Richmond, Virginia, is announcing the voluntary recall of more than 10,000 City Versa strollers. The stroller frame can fail to lock in place and collapse while in use, posing a fall hazard to children in the stroller. No injuries have been reported.
Do You Own It?
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.
The strollers were sold at buybuy Baby and other juvenile product stores nationwide and online at buybuybaby.com, albeebaby.com, diapers.com and other online retailers from July 2012 through October 2012 for about $450.
