Joovy Zoom 360 Jogging Stroller Recall Issued Over Defective Front Wheel Bearing, Fall Hazard
Following more than two dozen reports of problems where the front wheel of Joovy jogging strollers came off, including some incidents resulting in injuries when the wheel detached while in motion, a recall has been issued by the manufacturer.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight Jogging Stroller recall on October 7, indicating that the front wheel fork bearing can wear and break in its housing and then become detached.
This has resulted in at least 25 incident reports where the front wheel’s movement became restricted, and 12 incidents where the wheel fork bearing wore through the housing and detached. One such incident resulted in bruises when the wheel fork bearing problem caused a user to fall onto the stroller, according to the CPSC.
