Baby Trend Inc. Recalls Road Runner Jogging Strollers

Baby Trend Inc. Recalls Road Runner" Jogging StrollersOntario, CA  (SafetyAlerts) - Baby Trend Inc. is recalling to inspect about 1,500 "Road Runner" jogging strollers.  The Strollers were shipped without straps attached to the frame to secure the seat. Unless the frame straps are attached, a child in the seat of the stroller can lean forward and fall out.

Baby Trend has received one report of an 8-month- old baby boy leaning forward in a stroller with unsecured seat straps, falling out of the seat and bumping his head.

The recalled strollers are aluminum, three-wheeled strollers with hand brakes. The seat and back is made from a blue canvas-type fabric. The stroller has a three- strap harness that secures the child in the seat. Two additional straps snap together and secure the back corners of the seat to the stroller frame. "Baby Trend" is written on the aluminum frame. The recalled stroller is model number 9592T. The model number is written on a label located in the center of the rear axle.

Baby's "R" Us stores sold the strollers nationwide between January 1999 and April 1999 for about $200.

Consumers should stop using these strollers immediately and examine the stroller to determine if the seat is strapped to the stroller frame.

For more information, consumers should call Baby Trend at (800) 328-7363 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or write to Baby Trend Inc., 2019 S. Business Pkwy., Ontario, CA 91761. Consumers also can visit the company's web site at www.babytrend.com.
