Jogging Strollers Recalled by B.O.B.

The recalled strollers were made before March 2010 and have a yellow/orange drawstring at the rear of the canopy which is used to gather loose fabric when the canopy is pulled back.

Aww, man… I just sent them an e-mail a month or so ago asking why they had changed to the new canopy style because I liked the drawstring so much better!! This makes me sad, although I can see how it might pose a problem. My LO loves to pull on the strings from the inside when she is in her infant car seat facing backward and my preschoolers have also been known to pull on them from inside the canopy as well. 🙁
