This recall involves all B.O.B. strollers manufactured between November 1998 and November 2010. If your stroller was made after October 2006, it will have a white label on the back of the stroller leg with the manufacture date printed there.

This recall includes both single B.O.B and double B.O.B. strollers. The strollers were sold at REI, Babies R' Us and other children's product and sporting goods stores nationwide and on Amazon.com between November 1998 and October 2011 for between $280 and $600.

Reason for recall

The stroller canopy's embroidered logo's backing patch can detach, posing a choking hazard to babies and young children.
The CPSC has received six reports of the patch detaching and children putting it in their mouths. In two of those incidents, children gagged and choked, but no injuries were sustained.

What should you do?

You should stop using the stroller and immediately remove the embroidery backing patch from the interior of the canopy's logo. You can contact B.O.B. for info on how to remove the patch from the stroller.
