Joovy Holding Co., of Dallas, Texas, is recalling about 9,200 Zoom 360 Ultralight jogging strollers.
The stroller’s front wheel bearing can fail or detach, posing a fall and injury hazard.
There have been 25 incidents of restricted front wheel movement reported, including 12 incidents in which the wheel fork bearing wore through the housing and detached, with one fall resulting in bruises when the user fell onto the stroller.
