03/01/2011 // Greensboro, NC, USA // Personal Injury Lawyers News // Nicole Howley

Richmond, VA—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Health Canada and Baby Jogger LLC have voluntarily recalled about 1,545 Baby Jogger Jump Seats in the U.S. and about 450 in Canada for fall hazards. The CPSC announced the product recall on March 1, 2011.

The product recall was initiated after discovering that if the Jump Seat is not properly locked into place, the Jump Seat could disengage from the stroller, allowing the child to fall out.

“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,” reported the CPSC press release.

• Item # J7J50- Sold beginning of January 2008.

Consumers are advised to contact Baby Jogger to receive Jump Seat safety straps and assembly instructions.

For further information concerning the recall, consumers can contact Baby Jogger toll-free at (877) 506-2213 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET, e-mail the firm at [email protected], or visit their website at www.babyjogger.com.
