Baby Jogger City Versa Baby Stroller - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - A voluntary recall was announced for Baby Jogger City Versa strollers because they could fail to lock correctly causing the frame to collapse when being used. Baby Jogger will be offering a free replacement frame to remedy this problem. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission along with Health Canada made the recall announcement today.

The recall was publicized after the manufacturer received six reports of the stroller frame not locking correctly while being used. The reports did not involve any personal injuries.

The recall involves around 8,400 strollers in the United States and about 2,200 strollers in Canada. The recalled City Versa baby strollers were sold at buybuy Baby and other juvenile retail stores across North America. The strollers were also sold on buybuybaby.com, albeebaby.com, diapers.com, and other online stores. The recalled strollers were sold between July 2012 and October 2012 at a retail price around $450.

The recalled Baby Jogger City Versa model was manufactured between May 15, 2012 and August 20, 2012. The stroller has the manufacturer’s date printed on the black plastic side hinge below the words “Baby Jogger,” and “City Versa.” The words “City Versa” can also be found on the fabric were the child’s legs go. The strollers came with black, silver, red, or green fabric. The frame was a charcoal color and the strollers have canopies.

Consumers who have the recalled strollers are instructed not to use them until they can get a free replacement stroller frame from Baby Jogger.
