B-Nimble Strollers Recalls

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada in cooperation with Britax Child Safety Inc., of Charlotte, N.C. have recalled about 20,000 in the United States and 800 in Canada B-Nimble Strollers.
An audible click heard when the brake pedal is pressed can give a false impression that the brake is fully engaged when it is not. When the brake is not engaged, the stroller can move unexpectedly posing a risk of injury to the child occupant.
Britax has received seven reports of the brake not being fully engaged. No injuries have been reported.


This recall involves the products listed below:

This recall involves B-Nimble umbrella strollers manufactured on or after August 1, 2010. Strollers included in the recall have model numbers U311771, U311773, U311775 and U311780. The date of manufacture labels and model numbers can be found on the lower frame/tube on either the left or the right side. The strollers were sold in a variety of colors including black and silver, Cowmooflage (black and white), green and red. The B-Nimble Strollers were sold at Juvenile product and mass merchandise stores nationwide and online retailers between September 2010 and June 2011 for about $200. They were manufactured in China.
