February 23, 2012: Kelty Recalls Jogging Strollers
About 3,000 jogging strollers have been recalled due to fall and injury hazards.
Two styles of the jogging stroller are included in this recall. Image here represents just one.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Kelty, of Boulder, Colorado, a division of American Recreation Products, has recalled about 3,000 single and double jogging strollers. The front wheel can come loose during use and cause the stroller to tip over, posing a fall and injury hazard to children in the stroller and adults pushing the stroller.
There have been three reported incidents with these recalled strollers, including cuts, scrapes, and fractured bones to adults, and minor cuts and scrapes to children.
