    The stroller leg brackets can break, causing a falling hazard

    Delta Enterprise Corporation has issued a recall for 28,000 units of its J is for Jeep brand cross-country all-terrain jogging strollers. The company says that the stroller leg bracket can break and pose a fall hazard to infants in the stroller. 

    The strollers have two wheels in the back and one smaller wheel in the front, and can be identified by a "J is for Jeep" printing on the side of the stroller sun canopy and a star with a circle around it logo printed on the front bottom of the seat on the side of the stroller.

    The strollers were sold nationwide at Target, Walmart, and other stores from August 2015 to August 2016 for between $130 and $160. Thus far, there have been four reported incidents of the stroller leg bracket breaking, including one case in which a child fell from the stroller and received cuts and bruises.

    Delta says that consumers who have puchased an affected stroller should stop using it immediately and contact the company for a free repair. Delta can be reached at 800-377-3777 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday.

    Britax recalls Click & Go receivers on baby strollers due to potential fall hazard

    A damaged receiver mount can cause the car seat to disengage and fall unexpectedly

    Britax has initiated a recall of approximately 717,000 units of its Click & Go receivers found on Britax B-Agile and BOB Motion Strollers.

    The company says a damaged receiver mount on the stroller can cause the car seat to disengage and fall unexpectedly when the products are in travel system mode, which poses a fall hazard to infants in the car seat. The recall pertains to strollers that are folding, single or double occupant models and have Click & Go receiver mounts that attach the car seat carrier to the stroller frame.

    There are 121 affected model numbers of the B-Agile products and 21 affected model numbers of the BOB products included in the recall, which can be viewed here. The model numbers can be found on the inside of the stroller's metal frame near the right rear wheel for single strollers and in the front middle underside of the frame on double strollers.

    The products were sold nationwide between May, 2011 and February, 2017 at retailers like Babies R Us, buy buy Baby, and Target, as well as online at Amazon.com, albeebaby.com, buybuybaby.com, diapers.com, ToysRUs.com, and other websites. The products cost between $250 and $470 for the strollers and the travel systems. 

    Thus far, Britax has received 33 reports of car seats unexpectedly disconnecting from the strollers and falling to the ground, which has resulted in 26 injuries. The company is aware of 1,337 reports of strollers that have damaged Click & Go receiver mounts. 

    What to do

    Britax is urging consumers who own one of the affected products to stop using the strollers in cars; however, it says that the products can continue to be safely used as a stroller.

    The company is asking that consumers not return the product to the retailer. Instead, consumers should dispose of the Click & Go receivers. The company has pledged to provide a remedy kit to fix the broken part for single stroller models. 

    For more information, consumers can contact Britax online at us.britax.com/recall and stroller.recall@britax.com. Consumers can also reach the company by phone at 844-227-0300, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. EST and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. EST.

    Tray Vous recalls snack and activity trays for strollers

    The opening between the recalled tray and stroller seat bottom poses a strangulation hazard

    Tray Vous LLC of San Diego, Calif., is recalling about 860 Tray Vous snack and activity trays with connectors in the U.S. and Canada.

    The opening between the recalled tray and stroller seat bottom allows an unharnessed child’s body to pass through, but could trap a child’s head, posing a strangulation hazard.

    No incidents or injuries have been reported.

    This recall involves Tray Vous snack and activity trays, which have connectors that fit into strollers. The three-piece units include a black plastic tray with a cup holder, a left connector and a right connector.

    The tray measures about 15 inches wide by 6 inches deep by .75 inches thick. The left and right plastic connectors measure about 4 inches long by 1.75 inches wide by .75 inches thick and are used to connect the tray to the stroller’s base.

    “Tray Vous” and “Patent Approved US7942437B2” are printed on a sticker underneath the tray.

    The trays, manufactured in China and Taiwan, were sold at Dainty Baby in Brooklyn, N.Y., and other juvenile product stores nationwide and online at daintybaby.com, mystroller.com, pacifier.com and trayvous.com from May 2011, through June 2012, for about $50.

    Consumers should immediately remove the recalled trays and connectors from strollers and contact Tray Vous to receive a free replacement tray and connectors.

    Consumers may contact Tray Vous at (800) 281-6483 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT.
