The CPSC and Health Canada, in cooperation with B.O.B. Trailers Inc., of Boise, Idaho, today announced a voluntary recall of 337,000 B.O.B.(R) single and double strollers because a drawstring on the stroller can get wrapped around a child's neck, posing a strangulation hazard.
Defective Stroller Recall
This recall involves the following 11 models of B.O.B.(R) single and double strollers. The name "B.O.B" appears on the cargo basket under the stroller and on the front of the stroller. All of the recalled strollers have a yellow/orange drawstring at the rear of the canopy which is used to gather loose fabric when the canopy is pulled back. Strollers have the serial number either stamped in the frame or on a white label located on the stroller's rear right leg.
Defective Stroller & Product Liability
Product liability is an area of law that governs over the responsibility of manufacturers, sellers, and designers to create and sell safe products. If a product is not safe, or if a product can cause consumers harm, it is up to the designer, manufacturer, or seller to forewarn the consumers. If a consumer is injured by a defective product, or not forewarned about a product's defects, he/she may be allowed to file a lawsuit against the product's designers, manufacturers, or sellers.
