FBFG Investigating Possible Class Action Against Britax For BOB Jogger Stroller

The Washington Post recently revealed that, between 2012 and 2018, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) gathered 200 consumer reports regarding Britax Child Safety’s BOB jogger stroller.  According to the CPSC, nearly 100 adults and children were injured by the spontaneous failure of the stroller wheel, which is secured to a front fork by a quick-release lever, like on a bicycle.  After investigating the stroller for nearly a year, the CPSC found that the stroller’s alleged defect caused shattered bones, torn ligaments, and smashed teeth, and determined that Britax’s BOB jogging stroller was unsafe and needed to be recalled.

Despite the CPSC’s conclusions, Britax refused the Commission’s request for a voluntary recall of the nearly 500,000 allegedly-defective strollers.

According to the CPSC lawsuit, the following models of the stroller — manufactured and imported between 1997 and September 2015 — are affected by the defect:
