Britax recalls 676,000 strollers after reports of injuries

Britax Strollers recalled about 676,000 strollers after reports of 33 car seats unexpectedly disconnecting from strollers and falling to the ground, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported. The commission said 26 injuries to children, including scratches, bruises, cuts and bumps to the head, have been tallied.

Britax B-Agile and BOB Motion Strollers with Click & Go receivers were produced with a damaged receiver mount on the stroller that can cause the car seat to disengage and fall unexpectedly, posing a fall hazard to infants in the car seat. The company is aware of 1,337 reports of strollers with damaged Click & Go receiver mounts.

All recalled models are folding, single or double occupant strollers and have Click & Go receiver mounts that attach the car seat carrier to the stroller frame. The company reported that all colors of its stroller product are included in the recall. The model number can be found on the inside of the stroller’s metal frame near the right rear wheel for single strollers and in the front middle underside of the frame on double strollers.

Recalled model numbers include:

Consumers should immediately stop using their Click & Go receiver mounts and contact Britax for a free repair kit for single strollers, the commission reported. Owners of the recalled double strollers should stop using them with car seats attached. Consumers can continue to use their stroller or car seat independently without the car seat attached to the stroller.
