Jump Seat on certain Baby Jogger Strollers
Joint Recall with Baby Jogger, Health Canada, and the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC)
This recall involves the Baby Jogger Jump Seat. This is a fabric seat accessory that can be attached to the mounting bracket on the frame of a Baby Jogger City Elite, Baby Jogger City Classic, or Baby Jogger Summit stroller, allowing a toddler and baby to ride together in the same stroller at the same time.
The recalled accessory has the name "Baby Jogger" on the front and item number J7J50. The item number can be found on the product packaging.
If the Jump Seat is not attached to the stroller frame properly and locked into place, it can detach from the frame, posing a risk of injury to the child sitting in it.
In Canada, Baby Jogger has received one report of the Jump Seat detaching from the stroller frame, leading to a child suffering scrapes and bruises. There have been 3 reports in the United States of the seat detaching as well.
Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of this product.
