B.O.B Stroller Voluntary Recall

Last year I became acquainted with B.O.B. jogging strollers via some internet research I was doing while we were in the market for a double stroller. For those that are not familiar with B.O.B strollers they are basically the Cadillac of strollers. They are pricey but wonderful. They turn on a dime, fold down easily had have great hoods that really shield your child from the elements.

I was saddened to find out that on October 11th, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada recalled all BOB strollers manufactured between November 1998 and November 2010 due to their logo patches posing a choking hazard. See official press release below from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website.

Below is a graphic of the issue from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website:
