Canada has issued a nation-wide recall for a range of BOB Jogging Strollers after a number of models were found to have a potentially faulty front wheel.
According to the government recall, if the stroller’s quick release lever is improperly engaged, the front wheel may detach while in use.
The recall has been issued for approximately 37,905 products in Canada between January 1st, 1997 to September 30th, 2015.
The affected stroller models are:
- Revolution FLEX
- Revolution PRO
- Revolution SE
- Revolution CE
- Stroller Strides Fitness
- Sport Utility
“It is important to engage your quick release correctly because the function of the quick release is to secure your front wheel to your stroller,” warns the federal government.
“If the quick release is improperly engaged, your front wheel could detach in use, and you or your child could be injured.”
As of May 6th, 2019, the stroller manufacturer has received 16 reports of front wheel detachments in Canada.
No children have been injured in these cases, though four adults reported minor injuries.
If you believe that you have an affected BOB Jogging Stroller, the Canadian government recommends visiting the BOB Gear Information Campaign website for information and an instructional video on how to properly install the front wheel quick release.
The campaign website also offers alternatives, like a new wheel attachment mechanism or discount on a new stroller or accessory.
