Joovy, in cooperation with the CPSC, has recalled about 1,500 car seat adapters for their Zoom jogging stroller due to a fall hazard. If the car seat adapters are not secured to the stroller properly, the adapter can detach from the stroller causing a fall hazard.
Here is the official statement straight from Joovy (with the CPSC recall information below that!):
Everyday, we strive to create the best, most reliable products for every child that touches our products. In doing so, we stay true to our mission of putting the safety and happiness of children and parents first in everything we do.
Joovy, in an abundance of caution, is voluntarily recalling all Zoom® Car Seat Adapters. We have many satisfied customers using the Zoom® Car Seat Adapters everyday but if not secured properly, the adapter can detach from the stroller.
Because we stand behind each and every product we bring to market and want to be proactive in offering a resolution, we have partnered with the CPSC to voluntarily recall the units that have been shipped to consumers and retailers. We are offering free repair kits to assure a more secure attachment of the adapter to the stroller frame. The products involved are model numbers 00945 Zoom® Car Seat Adapter for Graco®, 00946 Zoom® Car Seat Adapter for Chicco®, and 00947 Zoom® Car Seat Adapter for Peg Perego®.
