Baby Jogger strollers recalled

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Baby Jogger City Mini strollers due to a fall hazard.

About 41,000 jogging strollers were imported from China by Baby Jogger LLC of Richmond, Va., and sold nationwide from November 2007 through July 2009 for $220 to $400.

The restraining belt buckle could break or unlatch, posing a threat to a child in the stroller, the commission said.

The strollers come in a variety of colors, but all include the words City Mini printed on the sides and front.

Consumers were advised to stop using the strollers and contact Baby Jogger for a free replacement buckle.

Consumers can call 877-506-2213 for information.
