San Diego, CA — Bumbleride Indie & Indie Twin Strollers are being voluntarily recalled by Bumbleride Inc., Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for fall hazards the product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on February 3, 2012.
The recall was issued after discovering that the front wheel can break at the axle hub, which can cause the stroller to tip over and pose a fall hazard to young children.
Bumbleride has received two reports, among the 36 incidents, in which a stroller tipped over and resulted in minor injuries.
“The recalled Bumbleride Indie strollers are model numbers I-107, I-110 and I-205 with a DOM (Date of Manufacture) from January 2009 through August 2011 sold in multiple colors. The DOM (Date of Manufacture) can be found on a white rectangular sticker affixed to the side of the seat frame. The recalled Bumbleride Indie Twin strollers are model numbers IT-108, IT-111, and IT-305 with a DOM (Date of Manufacture) from January 2009 through August 2011 sold in multiple colors. The DOM (Date of Manufacture) can be found on a white rectangular sticker affixed to the underside of the handle,” reported the CPSC.
Consumers are advised to contact Bumbleride to receive a free front wheel retrofit kit.
