CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 23, 2011 — BRITAX Child Safety, Inc. announced today that it is conducting a voluntary safety recall of the B-NIMBLE® stroller. The recall includes B-NIMBLE strollers manufactured on or after August 1, 2010 for Model #s U311771, U311773, U311775 and U311780.
No injuries have been reported, however BRITAX has determined an audible click heard when the brake pedal is pressed can give a false impression that the brake is fully engaged when it is not. When the brake is not engaged, the stroller can move unexpectedly posing a risk of injury to the child occupant.
To address this issue, BRITAX will send a free replacement B-NIMBLE stroller with a modified brake assembly to any consumer who previously purchased a B-NIMBLE stroller affected by this recall.
All B-NIMBLE stroller owners should confirm whether their B-NIMBLE is affected by verifying the model number. In order to receive a free replacement B-NIMBLE stroller, consumers owning an affected B-NIMBLE stroller must first call the BRITAX Customer Service Department at 1-888-427-4829.
Consumers should immediately stop using their strollers and contact BRITAX for information and to request an improved replacement stroller. Consumers who resume use of their strollers while awaiting the replacement should always ensure that the brake is fully engaged.
Owners of the B-NIMBLE stroller who have not registered their product or need to verify existing registration should contact the BRITAX information line, toll free at 1-888-427-4829.
