Babies Aren’t Safe
Britax has recalled its B-Agile and BOB Motion Strollers with Click & Go receivers. These strollers have “Click & Go” receiver mounts that attach a car seat to the stroller frame, the recall announcement said. A list of the recalled models can be found on the website CPSC.gov/recalls or on the Britax recall website. The model number on the stroller itself can be found on the bottom of the stroller frame. When the receiver mount on the stroller is damaged, it can cause the car seat to disengage and fall unexpectedly, posing a fall hazard to infants in the car seat, says the recall. About 676,000 of the strollers were sold in the United States. The company has received 33 reports of car seats unexpectedly disconnecting from the strollers and falling to the ground. These incidents have led to 26 reported injuries to children, including bruises, cuts and head injury.
The recalled strollers have been sold since 2011 at stores nationwide, including Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby and Target, as well as online at Amazon.com and Diapers.com. Consumers should stop using these strollers as travel systems immediately but do not need to return the stroller, Britax advises. According to representatives at Britax, it is safe to use the stroller in the fully reclined mode for an infant, without the car seat attached to the stroller. The company does recommend throwing away the Click & Go receiver and replacing it with a free repair kit. If your model meets the recall requirement, contact Britax consumer services at 1-844-227-0300 or Stroller.Recall@britax.com.
