The company is doing this as a voluntary procedure and it affects over 2,000 products in in the United States and Canada. Jump Seats are having trouble securely attaching to the stroller and there have been four reports of falls.

So how do you know if you own an item that is under this Baby Jogger recall? Here are the details. This is for the attachment Jump Seat that sits slightly above the stroller, allowing a toddler and an infant to ride at the same time. The product item number that is in question is J7J50 which were sold from January 2008 until July 2010.

If you feel you have this item you should stop using it immediately and contact the company. Their toll free number is (877) 506-2213 and they will send you safety straps and instructions. Also, if you have had any incidents with the aforementioned item, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada would like to hear from you.
