On March 1, 2011, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Health Canada, and Baby Jogger LLC announced the recall of Baby Jogger’s Jump Seat stroller accessory.
If the Baby Jogger Jump Seat is improperly mounted on a stroller, it can come loose and allow the child to fall out. The recall affects approximately 1,545 units sold in the U.S. and 450 sold in Canada.
The Baby Jogger Jump Seat is intended for families with two or more children. It allows a toddler to ride on top of a stroller while a baby rides in the stroller itself.
The seat has been sold in stores and on the Web since January of 2008. The CPSC reports that scrapes, bruises, cuts, and a broken nose have resulted from the failure of the Jump Seat.
Parents owning a Baby Jogger Jump Seat with item number J7J50 should stop using it immediately and contact the company at (877) 506-2213 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request safety straps and further instructions.
