WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKYT) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has filed an administrative complaint against Britax Child Safety, Inc. to prevent children from further harm.
The CPSC alleges that certain models of Britax's B.O.B. jogging strollers contain hazardous defects in their design.
The complaint claims consumers reported stroller wheel detachments caused injuries to both children and adults. Injuries suffered include concussions, dental injuries, and contusions and abrasions. Adults have suffered fractured bones and torn ligaments, contusions and abrasions.
Britax refused to recall or repair the strollers that pose a risk of injury to children and adults, prompting the Commission's complaint. They are seeking an order that Britax provide remedies to stop further injuries from occurring.
The three-wheel strollers, made up of 17 models, are causing the complaints. The design, according to the complaint, does not have a secure front wheel, and can suddenly detach during use.
The three-wheeled strollers include the following 17 models: Ironman, Ironman Duallie, Revolution, Revolution CE, Revolution Flex, Revolution Flex Duallie, Revolution Pro, Revolution Pro Duallie, Revolution SE, Revolution SE Demo, Revolution SE Duallie, Revolution SE Duallie Plus, Revolution SE Plus, Sport Utility Stroller, Stroller Strides, Stroller Strides Duallie and SUS Duallie.
