Britax B-Nimble Stroller Recall Issued Over Brake Failures

About 28,000 Britax B-Nimble strollers have been recalled because the brakes may appear to be engaged when they are not, which could lead to the strollers rolling away unexpectedly. 

The Britax B-Nimble stroller recall was announced on June 23 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) after Britax Child Safety, Inc., the manufacturer, received seven reports of the brake not being fully engaged. There have been no injuries reported in connection with the brake failure.

According to the CPSC, the B-Nimble stroller’s brakes give off an audible click when pressed, even though the brake has not been engaged. This may give a false impression to parents that the brake is fully in place when it is not. If a parent wrongly believes the brake to be engaged, the stroller could roll away unexpectedly, placing the child occupant in danger.
