Stroller recall hits Canada

Health Canada has joined a North America-wide recall on certain Britax child safety products.

The specific products include Britax B-Agile and BOB Motion strollers used as a travel system with a car seat carrier attached.

According to the Health Canada advisory, the recall involves all Britax B-Agile and BOB Motion strollers that have Click & Go receiver mounts that attach the car seat carrier to the stroller frame.

A damaged Click & Go receiver mount may cause a car seat to fall unexpectedly when using the stroller as a travel system. This recall does not affect the safety performance of the stroller or car seat when they are used independently from one another.

About 36,000 units of the product were sold in Canada between May 1, 2011, and Feb. 15, 2017.

As of today, the company has received 118 reports of consumer incidents in Canada and one report of injury, a bump to the head.

If you have one of the affected strollers, you should immediately stop using their Click & Go receivers and contact Britax for further instructions about disposing the receivers and remedy options. Consumers can continue to use their stroller or car seat independently without the car seat attached to the stroller.

Remedy kits are available at the company's website.
