Two Jogging Strollers Recalled for Safety Hazards

On May 2, 2000, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled two brands of jogging strollers.

The BOB Sport Utility Stroller and BOB Sport Utility Stroller D’lux has been recalled because the front wheel connector can crack when you’re using it. If this happens, the wheel can separate from the frame; you could loose control of the stroller, or the stroller could collapse, hurting your child. There have been seven reports of the wheel connector cracking, but no injuries had been reported at the time this was announced.
http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml00/00103a.html

The second recall is for "Road Runner" jogging strollers by Baby Trend Inc., of Ontario, California.
http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml00/00103b.html
These trollers were shipped without straps attached to the frame to secure the seat. If the frame straps are not attached, your child can lean forward and fall out. There has been one report of this happening: an 8-month-old baby boy who fell out of the seat and bumped his head.

Visit the CPSC documents above for more details.

If you have one of these strollers, you should stop using it immediately.

A BOB strollers can be returned to the store where you bought it or to BOB Trailers for repair. For more information, call (800) 893-2447 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or visit http://www.bobtrailers.com/safetynotice.html

For more information about theBaby Trend strollers, call (800) 328-7363 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or write to Baby Trend Inc., 2019 S. Business Pkwy., Ontario, CA 91761. Or visit the web site at http://www.babytrend.com.

Holding Hands can Save Lives

Did you know that the most common pedestrian deaths of children under 5 take place in driveways and parking lots?

There are several reason for this. A young child:
*Often can’t tell if car is moving toward or away from her
*Thinks if he can see the car, the driver can see him, but it’s often hard for the driver to see a small child, especially from a truck or van.
*Believes the car will stop for her (egocentric)
*Feels secure in parking lots and driveways, since there is little traffic.

But all it takes is one car!

To protect your child, always hold his hand when you’re crossing a parking lot or driveway. Explain that you’re doing this because the drivers can’t see him.
