Jogging Strollers Recalled Due To Injuries
Jogging strollers made by Pacific Cycle are being recalled nationwide after a number of reported injuries to children.
Pacific Cycle makes several models of strollers, and over 217,000 are being recalled including the Instep Safari, Instep Flight, Schwinn Turismo and Schwinn Discover.
The company has received over 132 reports of the front wheels on these strollers becoming loose or unstable. There have been 215 injuries resulting, including head injuries, sprains, lacerations, bruises, bumps and abrasions.
None of the injuries have been fatal, but the company is warning consumers to stop using these strollers immediately and to contact them for a repair kit to secure the front wheel.
The company even made a video to help those making the repairs.
The jogging strollers were sold at various small retailers and online at Amazon, Target, Walmart and Toys-R-Us between January 2010 and June 2016. They retailed from $130 up to $350.
Those with affected strollers are asked not to return them to the stores they bought them, but to contact Pacific Cycle directly.
