A popular jogging stroller is being recalled because of an attached seat for babies that may not properly lock into place causing the child to fall out. The recall affects1,545 Baby Jogger Jump Seats which attach to the Baby Jogger City Elite, Baby Jogger City Classic or Baby Jogger Summit strollers sold since January 2008. Four children have reportedly fallen out of the seats when they disengaged from the strollers. One baby was said to have suffered a broken nose.
This recall includes the Baby Jogger Jump Seat. The Jump Seat is a fabric seat accessory with the name “Baby Jogger” on the front that is attached to the mounting bracket on the frame of a Baby Jogger City Elite, Baby Jogger City Classic or Baby Jogger Summit stroller and allows a toddler and baby to ride together in the same stroller at the same time. The item number is printed on the product packaging. The attachments were sold at juvenile products stores, mass merchandisers, and department stores nationwide and on the Web from January 2008 through July 2010 for about $100. Anybody who has one of these should stop using it and contact Baby Jogger at (877) 506-2213, or by e-mail at email@example.com to receive Jump Seat safety straps and assembly instructions.
