Recalled: Single and double jogging strollers from B.O.B.

Tue, Oct 10, 2011 — BOB Trailers has announced a recall of about 411,700 single and double jogging strollers in the United States and 27,000 in Canada in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The recall includes strollers sold under the BOB, Ironman, and Stroller Strides brand names. The company recalled 357,000 strollers in February 2011 for a strangulation hazard.

The stroller canopy’s embroidered logo has a backing patch that can detach, posing a choking hazard to babies and young children. BOB has received six reports of children mouthing the detached patch. In two cases, the child was gagging and choking, but in all cases the patch was removed from the child’s mouth without injury. In each of the reported incidents, the child was seated in an infant car seat attached to the stroller.

This recall involves all BOB strollers manufactured between November 1998 and November 2010. Strollers manufactured after October 2006 have a white label affixed to the back of the stroller’s leg with the manufacturing date. Strollers with no manufacturing date listed were produced prior to October 2006 and are also included in this recall.

The strollers were sold in single- and double-seat models. The BOB, Ironman, or Stroller Strides brand name is embroidered on the canopy of the strollers.

The strollers were sold at REI, Babies “R” Us, and other children’s product and sporting goods stores nationwide, and online at They were sold from November 1998 to October 2011 for between $280 and $600 and were made in Taiwan and China.
