The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Kelty, today announced a voluntary recall of about 3,000 Kelty Single and Double Jogging Strollers because the front wheel can come loose during use and cause the stroller to tip over, posing a fall and injury hazard to children in the stroller and adults pushing the stroller.
There have been three reported incidents with these recalled strollers, including cuts, scrapes and fractured bones to adults, and minor cuts and scrapes to children.
This recall involves Kelty Speedster Swivel Deluxe single jogging strollers and Swivel Deuce double jogging strollers. The strollers have an aluminum frame and a cloth seat with a canopy. They were sold in color combinations blue/gray and orange/gray. “Kelty Kids” is embroidered on the front of the stroller in the child’s leg area. The following model numbers are included in this recall. The model number and stroller name are printed on a tag inside the stroller’s seat area.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Kelty toll-free at (866) 349-7225 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. MT, or visit the firm’s website at www.kelty.com to receive free updated assembly and maintenance instructions.
