Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall notification applies to multiple models of BOB Jogging Strollers, assistive products designed to transport infants while their parent or caregiver walks, jogs or runs at speed, and manufactured and imported between January 1, 1997 and September 30, 2015, as follows:

  • All of the recalled Jogging Strollers models have a removable front wheel that is attached to the Stroller by a quick release lever. The following models are affected:
    • Revolution FLEX Jogging Strollers
    • Revolution PRO Jogging Strollers
    • Revolution SE Jogging Strollers
    • Revolution CE Jogging Strollers
    • Stroller Strides Fitness Jogging Strollers
    • Sport Utility Jogging Strollers
    • Ironman Jogging Strollers

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. One (1) additional image of the recalled Jogging Strollers can be found on the Web site above.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to Health Canada, the front wheel of the recalled Baby Strollers may detach if improperly secured causing the Stroller to flip over. If this defect occurs, it poses possible fall and injury hazards for the child being carried as well as the parent or caregiver.

It is important to engage your quick release correctly because the function of the quick release is to secure your front wheel to the Stroller. If the quick release is improperly engaged, the Stroller’s front wheel could detach in use, injuring the child or parent/caregiver or both. As of May 6, 2019, Britax Child Safety had received sixteen (16) reports of front wheel detachment in Canada, four (4) reports of adult scratches and bruises but no reported child injuries.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Jogging Strollers, please do not use them. Instead, kindly visit the BOB Gear Information Campaign Web site to view an online video for further instructions on how to properly install the front wheel quick release or how to obtain certain Campaign incentives, such as an alternative attachment mechanism or discount on a new Stroller or Accessory. You can see the video here: https://bobinfocampaign.britax.com/.

The BOB Jogging Strollers are not currently subject to a formal Recall Order made under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act. Health Canada’s Consumer Product Safety Program, however, considers the actions taken by Britax to fall within the definition of “recall” that appears in the department’s guidance document, “A Guide for Voluntary Recall of Consumer Products or Cosmetics” in Canada, available here: https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/consumer-product-safety/reports-publications/industry-professionals/recalling-consumer-products-guide-industry.html. Britax’s actions fall within this definition since corrective actions taken post-production were communicated to product owners to address safety issues associated with the product.

If you have any questions about this recall, please contact Britax Child Safety toll-free at 1-833-474-0938 from 9:00 AM to 5:15 PM Eastern Standard Time, Monday to Thursday and from 9:00 AM to 4:45 PM EST on Friday.

Please note: the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.
