Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves Britax B-Agile, B-Agile Double and BOB Motion Baby Strollers. The single and double Strollers were sold in various color schemes, including black, red, kiwi, sandstone, navy and orange. They were manufactured between March 2011 and June 2013 and have the following model numbers: U341763, U341764, U341782 and U341783 for the B-Agile strollers; U361818 or U361819 for the B-Agile Double strollers; and U391820, U391821 and U391822 for the BOB Motion Strollers. The model number and the manufacture date in YYYY/MM/DD format can be found on label located on the inside of the Stroller’s metal frame near the right rear wheel.

According to the CPSC, the hinge on the Stroller’s folding mechanism can partially amputate parent’s or other caregiver’s fingertips, break their fingers or cause severe lacerations, among other injuries, when they press the release button while pulling on the release strap.

Britax has received eight incident reports. These incidents include one partial fingertip amputation, one broken finger and severe finger lacerations.

Please note: this is a joint recall from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and Health Canada (“HCSC”).
