Recent product recalls, July 4th safety reminder

STROLLERS About 20,000 Britax B-Nimble strollers sold at juvenile product and mass merchandise stores nationwide and online retailers between September 2010 and June 2011 for about $200. 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. Britax has received seven reports of the brake not being fully engaged. No injuries have been reported.
Consumer Reports first reported this safety hazard to the Consumer Product Safety Commission and Britax in April.
IF YOU OWN ONE Stop using it and contact Britax at 888-427-4829 or go to Britaxusa.com for information and to request an improved replacement stroller.
