CPSC sues Britax over hazardous strollers”

The CPSC said in a statement released on Friday, Feb. 16 that children who were injured from use of the strollers suffered from concussions, dental injuries, contusions, abrasions, and injuries to the head and face that require stitches.

The CPSC alleges that certain models of Britax's B.O.B. jogging strollers contain hazardous defects in their design. Since January 2012, approximately 200 consumers have reported front wheel detachments while using the stroller, resulting in at least 97 injuries to children and adult consumers.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is now suing a jogging stroller company over child injuries.

CPSC sues Britax over hazardous strollers

The Commission voted 3-1 to approve the filing of the complaint which seeks an order that stops Britax from distributing the strollers, notifies the public of the defect and offers consumers a remedy which may include a fix, replacement or refund. Adults have sustained fractured bones, torn ligaments, contusions, and abrasions.

The agency said that wheel detachments can cause the stroller to tip over and possibly injure the children who are in the device and the adult operator. The complaint seeks to make the company halt sales of strollers, and to notify the public and offer to fix, replace or refund the product. Asked about the reports of injuries from the strollers, a spokesperson called them "rare".

The design, according to the complaint, does not have a secure front wheel, and can suddenly detach during use. Of the reported injuries, 50 involve children and 47 involve adults.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission provided the published release.

The three-wheel strollers, made up of 17 models, are causing the complaints.

The strollers were sold at mass retailers and independent stores across the USA for $400 to $650, and many are believed to now be available in second-hand stores, the CPSC said in its legal filing.
