Britax recalls more than 700,000 strollers

More than 700,000 strollers with Click & GO receiver mounts have been recalled by Britax Child Safety Inc. due to a fall hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced in a release Thursday.

The recalled models include 676,000 strollers sold in the United States and 41,100 sold in Canada and Mexico, CNN reported.

The affected models include Britax B-Agile and BOB Motion strollers when they are used with a travel system with a car seat carrier. The recalled strollers are, "folding, single or double occupant strollers and have Click & Go receiver mounts that attach the car seat carrier to the stroller frame," the recall announcement said.

The company has received 33 reports of car seats detaching from the stroller without warning and falling, CNN reported. There have been 26 injuries reported including scratches, bruises, cuts and bumps to the head. There have been 1,337 reports of damage to the Click & Go receiver mount used to connect the car seats to the strollers, CNN reported.

In a release to consumers that can be downloaded from the company website, Britax wrote that the damaged receiver mounts “can cause the attached car seat to disengage unexpectedly, posing a fall hazard to infants in the car seat. If the car seat falls to the ground, infants can sustain injuries, such as scratches, bruises, and/or bumps to the head.”

Britax advises consumers to stop using the B-Agile and BOB Motion stroller as a travel system, but adds that it is safe to use the stroller in recline-mode for infants.

The recalled strollers have been sold since May 2011 at stores nationwide, including Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby and Target, as well as online at Amazon.com, albeebaby.com and diapers.com, CNN reported.

The company recommends throwing away the Click & Go receiver and replacing it with a free repair kit. For more information, call the Britax consumer services department at 1-844-227-0300 or Stroller.Recall@britax.com.

  • An 18-month-old boy died after a reported drowning at a Yulee home on Tuesday, officials said. The boy was taken to the hospital after the reported drowning on Lents Road near Roses Bluff Road at approximately 11 a.m. Nassau County Sheriff's Office deputies said the boy was in the care of his 15-year-old babysitter. He was in an above-ground pool outside a trailer, deputies said. His death is under investigation. No one has been charged at this point, deputies said.
  • The body of a woman found found Monday inside a bathroom at a Walmart in Oklahoma has been identified, but police still aren’t sure how long she was there. >> Read more trending news Sand Springs police have identified the woman as 29-year-old Katherine Caraway from Muskogee. According to police, employees assumed that the family bathroom was out of order because it was locked. Employees placed an out of order sign on the door Friday and it remained there throughout the weekend. On Monday, employees unlocked the bathroom door and found the woman.  Sand Springs Police say their preliminary investigation shows nothing suspicious about the woman's death. They do not know why she was in Sand Springs.  Walmart issued the following statement about the discovery:   'We are saddened by this. We don't know all the facts right now, but we are working closely with local law enforcement to provide what information we have that might be useful. Because this is an ongoing investigation, we must refer you to them for additional information.' 
  • A Middleburg man was arrested after witnesses say he pointed a bow and arrow at his neighbor's new boyfriend. That woman told Action News Jax she's frustrated law enforcement didn't take action sooner. 'He was always a very nice person, but he lost his mind,' she said. She asked not to be identified out of fear of retaliation. Gary Ruddlesden lives with his mother right around the corner from her. Clay County deputies arrested Ruddlesden after witnesses said he pointed a bow and arrow at the woman's new boyfriend after an argument through the fence. 'Bow and arrow sounds kind of like a kid thing, almost. But it's like a hunting bow and arrow,' she said. Ruddlesden's mother said her son just wanted to scare them, not hurt them. 'He's not a bad person,' said Ruddlesden's mother. Ruddlesden told his mother and friends that the woman is his ex-girlfriend, but she said they were just friends. Clay County Sheriff's Office records show the woman called deputies out to her home three times in the past month with complaints that Ruddlesden was harassing her. 'Since May 26, I've probably gotten over 300 texts. So when the police came out, you know, you try to point out the threatening ones - that he was going to kill my animals,' she said. The reports said deputies told her to block his number. She said she hopes this will be a wake-up call to law enforcement that they need to take women's complaints of harassment more seriously. Ruddlesden is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, a third-degree felony. He is being held on $15,000 bond. Although Ruddlesden has had a few run-ins with the law in the past, including pleading guilty to trafficking drugs, court records show this was his first time being arrested for a violent crime in Clay County.
