3,000 jogging strollers have been voluntarily recalled, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced today.
Product: Kelty Single and Double Jogging Strollers
Made By: Kelty, a division of American Recreation Products, imported the strollers, which were sold at juvenile product stores and sporting goods stores nationwide and by Web retailers including www.kelty.com from January 2010 through February 2012 for between $375 and $475.
Why it’s being recalled: The front wheel can come loose during use and cause the stroller to tip over, posing a fall and injury hazard to children in the stroller and adults pushing the stroller. There have been three reported incidents with these recalled strollers, including cuts, scrapes and fractured bones to adults, and minor cuts and scrapes to children.
Description: Kelty Speedster Swivel Deluxe single jogging strollers and Swivel Deuce double jogging strollers. The strollers have an aluminum frame and a cloth seat with a canopy. They were sold in color combinations blue/gray and orange/gray. “Kelty Kids” is embroidered on the front of the stroller in the child’s leg area. The following model numbers are included in this recall. The model number and stroller name are printed on a tag inside the stroller’s seat area.
