Britax Recall About 20,000 B-Nimble Strollers

Britax has announced a recall of about 20,000 B-Nimble strollers in the U.S. and about 800 in Canada in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada.

An audible click heard when the brake pedal is pressed can give a false impression that the brake is fully engaged when it is not. When the brake is not engaged, the stroller can move unexpectedly posing a risk of injury to the child. Britax has received seven reports of the brake not being fully engaged. No injuries have been reported with this recall.

This recall involves B-Nimble umbrella strollers manufactured on or after August 1, 2010. Strollers included in the recall have model numbers U311771, U311773, U311775 and U311780. The date of manufacture labels and model numbers can be found on the lower frame/tube, near the storage basket, on either the left or the right side. The strollers were sold in a variety of colors including black and silver, Cowmooflage (black and white), green and red.

The recalled stroller was sold at juvenile product and mass merchandise stores nationwide and online retailers between September 2010 and June 2011 for about $200. The stroller was made in China.
