Britax and the Consumer Product Safety Commission today announced the recall of more than 700,000 strollers because the mounts meant to secure a car seat in place can fail, causing an infant car seat to detach.
Britax has received 33 reports of car seats detaching and falling off the stroller, resulting in 26 injuries to children that included scratches, bruises, and bumps to the head. In addition, the company has received 1,337 reports of the mount becoming damaged.
The recall, which was announced on the CPSC's Facebook page, includes the Britax B-Agile and Bob Motion strollers that use Click & Go receivers (mounts) to attach an infant car seat (see red arrows in images above and below). Models included in the recall were sold in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico from May 2011 to February 2017 for $250 to $470 for the strollers and travel systems.
To see whether your stroller is affected, check the recall notices posted on the websites of the CPSC or Britax. You can find the model number on the inside of the metal frame of your stroller or on the box it came in.
