Direct Buy Baby Jogger stroller recall

On March 1, 2011 the Jump Seat on certain Baby Jogger Strollers has been jointly recalled with Baby Jogger, Health Canada, and the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC).

This recall involves the Baby Jogger Jump Seat. This is a fabric seat accessory that can be attached to the mounting bracket on the frame of a Baby Jogger City Elite, Baby Jogger City Classic, or Baby Jogger Summit stroller, allowing a toddler and baby to ride together in the same stroller at the same time.

The recalled accessory has the name "Baby Jogger" on the front and item number J7J50. The item number can be found on the product packaging.

What is the danger?

If the Jump Seat is not attached to the stroller frame properly and locked into place, it can detach from the frame, posing a risk of injury to the child sitting in it.

In Canada, Baby Jogger has received one report of the Jump Seat detaching from the stroller frame, leading to a child suffering scrapes and bruises. There have been three reports in the United States of the seat detaching as well.

Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of this product.

What should I do?

You should immediately stop using the recalled Jump Seat and contact Baby Jogger for further instructions.
