The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Health Canada and B.O.B. Trailers Inc. recalled over 350,000 jogging strollers late last night. A total of 11 models were recalled due to a drawstring that can pose as a strangling hazard to children. All of the recalled strollers have a yellow or orange drawstring to gather fabric on the canopy, and you’ll find the stroller’s serial number stamped in the frame or on the label on the right rear leg. The strollers have been sold at various retailers such as REI, Buy Buy Baby, Target.com, Babiesrus.com and Amazon.com, among others, between April 2002 and February 2011.
