WASHINGTON (AP) - Hundreds of thousands of popular B.O.B.
jogging strollers are being recalled because of choking concerns.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the backing on an embroidered logo patch on the stroller's canopy can come loose.
CPSC says the firm has received six reports of children mouthing a
detached patch backing. Two cases involved choking and gagging.
Consumers need to remove the embroidery backing patch before
they can use the stroller. They can visit the website of B.O.B.

The recall involves more than 411,000 single and double jogging
strollers in the United States and 27,000 in Canada.
The strollers were sold at REI, Babies R Us and other stores
nationwide between November 1998 and October 2011.
