Baby Jogger recalls adaptors, reports of infants injured

Car seat adaptors by Baby Jogger can fail, two reports of children hurt

Baby Jogger recalled three of its car seat adaptors after reports of support bars failing and at least two children being injured.

The company's car seat adaptor for strollers is being recalled because the support bars can fail causing a fall hazard to children.  There are 47 reports of the bars failing and car seats falling to the floor.  Of the reports, two infants received bruises to their heads and toes.  

The adaptors come in three models and are used to secure several infant car seats into Baby Jogger strollers. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the “Single” model fits all single strollers, the “Double” works only on double strollers and the “Select/Versa” fits Select and Versa strollers.  

The car seat adaptors are two U-shaped, black, aluminum support bars and two black plastic adaptors that allow the support bars to attach onto the stroller. Black nylon straps secure the car seat to the adaptor on the stroller. The black support bars are labeled A and B.  The A support bar is the larger of the two U-shaped bars and has a red plastic tip with 10 holes.

Newer models have only four holes and are not being recalled.

The following models were recalled:
