Baby stroller recalled after hundreds of injuries reported

PROVIDENCE, R.I (WPRI) — Hundreds of injuries have prompted a recall on jogging strollers on more than 215,000 strollers.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says it has received 215 reports of injuries caused by Instep and Schwinn Jogging Strollers.

Reports show that the front wheel can easily become loose or detach itself from the strollers.

The strollers have been sold nationwide and online over the past six years. Contact Pacific Cycle for a repair kit.

Little Locus Baby Swaddles and Sleeping bags have also been recalled due to a potential choking hazard.

The shoulder snaps can break or detach, and could choke a small child, says the CPSC.

There have been reports of the snaps breaking, but no reported injuries.

Contact Little Locus for a refund.

About 1,200 fold-able scooters are being recalled because the bolt below the seat can crack, which would cause people to fall.

Urban626 has received 3 incident reports but no serious injuries.

If you own one, stop using it and contact Urban626 for a free repair kit or reimbursement.

These recalls follow a recall on Wednesday of more than half a million hover-boards because the batteries inside can overheat and start fires.
