The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Health Canada and Bumbleride have issued a voluntary recall of the Bumbleride Indie & Indie Twin strollers due to a fall hazard. The strollers are being recalled because the front wheel can break at the axle hub causing the stroller to tip over. There have been reports of the stroller tipping over and children sustaining injuries due to the incident.
The recalled Indie strollers are models numbers I-107, I-110 and I-205 and the Date of Manufacture (DOM) was January 2009 to August 2011. The DOM can be found on a white sticker on the side of the seat frame. The recalled Indie Twin strollers are model numbers IT-108, IT-111, and IT-305 with a DOM from January 20009 to August 2011. The DOM for the Indie Twin strollers can be found on a white sticker on the underside of the handle. The defective strollers were sold at Buy Buy Baby, baby product stores and various online retailers from January 2009 to January 2012.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Bumbleride to receive a free wheel retrofit kit.
