August 28, 2013: Baby Jogger Recalls Car Seat Adaptors for Strollers
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Baby Jogger, announced a voluntary recall of their Car Seat Adaptors for Strollers. About 23,700 adaptors in the US and 6,500 in Canada have been recalled.
What’s the Deal?
Baby Jogger has received 47 reports of the car seat adaptor support bars failing and car seats falling to the floor. Reports include two injured infants with bruises to the head and toes.
Do You Own It?
The car seat adaptors come in three models and are used to secure a variety of infant car seats onto Baby Jogger strollers. The “Single” model fits all single strollers, the “Double” works only on double strollers and the “Select/Versa” fits Select and Versa strollers. The car seat adaptors consist of two U-shaped, black, aluminum support bars and two black plastic adaptors that allow the support bars to attach onto the stroller. Black nylon straps secure the car seat to the adaptor on the stroller. The black support bars are labeled A and B. The A support bar is the larger of the two U-shaped bars and has a red plastic tip with 10 holes.
Newer models have only four holes and are not being recalled. The model number is located on the lower right hand corner of the original package and the manufacturing date can be found on a sticker on the bottom of the package.
The adaptors were sold at Buy Buy Baby and other juvenile product stores nationwide and at albeebaby.com, amazon.com, buybuybaby.com, diapers.com and other online retailers from June 2012 through June 2013 for about $60 for the single adaptor and $100 for the double adaptor
What Should You Do?
Consumers should immediately stop using their car seat adaptor and contact Baby Jogger for free replacement support bars.
