More than 12K Dorel Juvenile Canada strollers get recalled
Dorel Juvenile Canada has issued a recall of more than 12,000 jogging strollers, said Health Canada.
This recall involves single and double occupant swivel wheel jogging strollers that have a quick release mechanism for removing and re-attaching the front wheel.
Health Canada said Instep, Instep Safari and Schwinn Grand Safari strollers with the following model numbers are affected.
The model number is located on the back of the stroller seat on a label.
The strollers in question were sold between January 2010 and April 2016:
- Instep Safari TT Double Stroller — 01AR266CRED
- Instep Safari TT Double Stroller — 01AR265
- Instep Safari Delux Double Stroller — 01153CCWU
- Instep Safari Swivel Wheel Jogging Stroller — 01AR180
- Instep Free Wheeler Jogging Stroller — 01SC701
- Schwinn Grand Safari Tandem Jogging Stroller — 04STAD12
If not installed properly, the front wheel can become loose and detach, posing crash and fall hazards.
Neither Dorel Juvenile Canada nor Health Canada has received any consumer reports of incidents or injuries related to their use in Canada.
In the United States, Pacific Cycle has received 132 reports of the front wheel becoming loose or unstable, resulting in 215 injuries, including head injuries, sprains, lacerations, bumps, bruises, and abrasions.
