City Versa Stroller Recall Issued Over Failure to Lock
Almost 11,000 City Versa baby strollers have been recalled after reports indicate that the frame may fail and collapse while in use, posing a safety hazard for children in the stroller.
The Baby Jogger City Versa strollers recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer product Safety Commission (CPSC) on December 12, after the manufacturer received at least six reports that the locked frame can unfasten and collapse, possibly causing the child to fall.
The recalled strollers were manufactured in China under Baby Jogger LLC, of Richmond, Virginia and distributed throughout the United States and Canada. Roughly 8,400 were recalled in the U.S. and 2,200 in Canada.

The recall involves all Baby Jogger City Versa model strollers that were manufactured between May 15 and August 20, 2012. The manufacture date is printed on the black plastic side hinge, below “Baby Jogger” and “City Versa”. The strollers have charcoal-colored metal frames with black, silver, red or green canopies and seat fabric with “City Versa” written across the front.
The recalled strollers were sold at buybuy Baby stores and other juvenile product stores nationwide as well as online at buybuybaby.com, albeebaby.com, diapers.com and other online retailers from July 2012 through October 2012 for about $450.
There have been no reported injuries related to the strollers collapsing, but the CPSC recommends that consumers stop using the product immediately and contact Baby Jogger at (877) 506-2213 for a free replacement stroller frame.
