The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Britax, today announced a voluntary recall of about 20,800 B-Nimble strollers in US and Canada. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
Hazard: An audible click heard when the brake pedal is pressed can give a false impression that the brake is fully engaged when it is not. When the brake is not engaged, the stroller can move unexpectedly posing a risk of injury to the child occupant.
Incidents/Injuries: Britax has received seven reports of the brake not being fully engaged. No injuries have been reported.
Description: 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.
Sold at: Juvenile product and mass merchandise stores nationwide and online retailers between September 2010 and June 2011 for about $200.
Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using their strollers and contact Britax for information and to request an improved replacement stroller. Consumers who resume use of their strollers while awaiting the replacement should always ensure that the brake is fully engaged.
