216,000 Britax Single and Double Strollers Recalled due to Fingertip Amputation Hazard
Britax is recalling 216,000 B-Agile, B-Agile Double and BOB Motion child single and double strollers in the USA and another 8,800 in Canada. The reason for the recall is when users fold the stroller; the hinge can partially amputate users’ fingertips, break their fingers or cause severe lacerations, when they press the release button while pulling on the release strap. These strollers were sold in major retailers from May 2011 to June 2013.
