According to recent news, there was a recall issued for over 400,000 strollers manufactured by the B.O.B. Trailers Inc. due to possible chocking hazards. The company has stated that there were reports of children mouthing a patch that detached unexpectedly. Two of the reports stated that children gagged and even choked on it. In all of the six cases related to this product, the children were all seating in an infant car seat attached to the malfunctioning stroller.
The company has requested all consumers to contact them. The recall involved all strollers produced by B.O.B. between November 1998 and November 2010. Some of the stores that carried this item include REI, Amazon.com, Babies ‘R Us and many other retailers Nationwide. The price of the stroller ranged from $280 to $600.
The brands Ironman®, BOB® and Stroller Strides® can be seen embroidered somewhere on the canopy of the recalled baby strollers.
As a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer I hope that being taken around this defected stroller will injure no more children. Hopefully, the recall will be one hundred per cent positive and all parents will be able to carry their children around utilizing a safer gadget. Personal injury lawyers are aware that such cases can have many ramifications if not taken care of in a timely manner, so if you ever have any problem with a defect product don’t hesitate to contact a product liability attorney to assist you with your case.
