Approximately 357,000 B.O.B. single and double jogging strollers were recently recalled in the United States and Canada as a result of reports that a drawstring on the stroller can get wrapped around a child’s neck, which could result in strangulation.

The popular stroller manufacturer B.O.B. Trailers, Inc. recalled the stroller after it received one report of an 11-month-old girl becoming entangled in the drawstring. The child was ultimately freed from the drawstring by her mother.

The strollers recalled include the following 11 models of B.O.B. single and double strollers, all of which have the name “B.O.B” on the cargo basket under the stroller and on the front of the stroller and a yellow/orange drawstring at the rear of the canopy that is used to gather loose fabric when the canopy is pulled back:

What to do if your stroller has been recalled

To determine whether your stroller has been recalled, consumers should check their stroller’s serial number located near the stroller’s rear right leg, either stamped in the frame or on a white label. If your stroller has been recalled, you should immediately stop using the stroller and remove the drawstring. If the stroller was used with a separately-purchased Weather Shield or Sun Shield accessory, consumers should contact B.O.B. Trailers for a free canopy retrofit kit at (855) 242-2245 or www.bobcanopy.com.

If you or your child has been injured using one of the recalled strollers, you may wish to contact the experienced Illinois product liability attorneys at Ankin Law Offices to learn about a possible personal injury or product liability claim.
