CPSC Product Recall: B-Nimble Strollers Pose Injury Risks; Braking Defective

Charlotte, NC — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Britax Child Safety Inc. have voluntarily recalled B-Nimble Strollers in the United States and Canada for injury risks the product poses. The CPSC announced the product recall on June 23, 2011.
The product recall was issued after discovering that an audible click heard when the brake pedal is pressed can give consumers a false impress that the brake is fully engaged, when it actually is not. This can cause the stroller to move unexpectedly, which poses a risk of injury to the child in the stroller.
The CPSC reported, “This recall involves B-Nimble umbrella strollers manufactured on or after August 1, 2010. Strollers included in the recall have model numbers U311771, U311773, U311775 and U311780. The date of manufacture labels and model numbers can be found on the lower frame/tube on either the left or the right side. The strollers were sold in a variety of colors including black and silver, Cowmooflage (black and white), green and red.”
Consumers are advised to contact Britax for information how to request an improved replacement stroller. If you resume the use of your stroller while awaiting the replacement stroller, you should always double check to make sure the brake is fully engaged.
For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Britax toll-free at (888) 427-4829 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday and, or visit www.britaxusa.com.
