Potentially dangerous products recalled by Britax

An unspoken expectation exists that any product designed and made for babies is going to be safe. Unfortunately, not all products live up to this expectation. Some New Jersey residents may need to know that Britax Child Safety Inc. has recalled many of its strollers because they are considered dangerous products.

The potential danger is not necessarily to the child seated in these strollers. When the release button is pushed while the release strap is being pulled, there is a risk to the individual performing these functions. Britax has already received eight injury reports from consumers.

One person lost the tip of a finger, another person broke a finger and others have suffered severe lacerations on their fingers. According to the company, other injuries are also possible with the use of these strollers. The recall includes somewhere in the neighborhood of 216,000 strollers sold between May 2011 and June 2013.

The Britax strollers that are the subject of the recall include the single and double BOB Motion strollers, the B-Agile and the B-Agile Double. They were sold in various colors at both major retailers and stores that sell children's products nationwide. The strollers were also available online. Consumers who own one of the affected strollers are urged to stop using it immediately. The company will provide a repair kit to consumers who contact them via phone or internet.

It is possible that more injuries have occurred than the number that has been reported to the company so far. New Jersey residents who were injured by one of these strollers retain the right to file a products liability claim against the company in connection with these dangerous products. If successful, a court may award monetary relief to the victims for their injuries.
