If you own a single or double stroller, check the serial number. B.O.B. Trailers has issued a massive recall of 337,000 defective strollers. These defective baby strollers have a canopy with a drawstring that babies and small children can get tangled in and choke. The recall was announced after an 11-month-old girl was reportedly saved from strangulation by her mother in the nick of time.
The defective strollers subject to this recall have been sold at REI, buy buy Baby, BabiesRUs.com, Target.com, and Amazon.com since April 2002. The recall affects eleven models of baby strollers:
