B.O.B. Single and Double Strollers Recalled Due to Choking Hazard

More than 438,000 B.O.B.® single and double strollers in the United States and Canada were recalled by the U.S. Consumer and Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with the strollers' manufacturer, on October 11, 2011.  The strollers were recalled because the stroller canopy's embroidered logo backing patch can detach, creating a choking hazard to babies and young children.

To date, the strollers' manufacturer - B.O.B. Trailers, Inc. - has received six reports of children mouthing the detached patch, with gagging and choking occurring in two of the incidents.  In each case, the child was seated in an infant car seat attached to the stroller and the backing patch was removed from the child's mouth without injury.

The recall includes B.O.B. single and double strollers that were manufactured between November 1998 and November 2010.  Strollers manufactured after October 2006 have a white label affixed to the back of the stroller's leg that includes the manufacturing date.  Strollers with no manufacturing date listed are still included in the recall.  The recalled strollers have the brand name BOB®, Ironman® or Stroller Strides® embroidered on the canopy of the strollers.

The recalled strollers were sold at REI, Babies R' Us and other children's product and sporting goods stores throughout the United States, and via, from November 1998 to October 2011.  The recalled strollers had a retail price of between $280 and $600.

If you own one of the recalled strollers, you should immediately stop using the stroller until the embroidery backing patch can be removed from the interior of the canopy's logo.  Consumers can contact B.O.B. Trailers for information on how to remove the backing patch and for any additional information by calling (855) 242-2245 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday, or by visiting the firm's website at
