Reason for recall

The US CPSC received a report of an eleven month old infant who became tangled in the drawstring around her neck. Her mother safely removed her, but the drawstring poses a strangulation hazard.

What should you do?

You can simply remove the drawstring if you do not use any separate accessories for your stroller. To get instructions on how to do that, visit BobCanopy.com. If you use the optional sun shield accessory or the optional weather shield accessory, you need a retrofit kit. You can obtain one by logging onto BobCanopy.com.
