Recall Details

Description:

The car seat adaptors come in three models and are used to secure a variety of infant car seats onto Baby Jogger strollers. The "Single" model fits all single strollers, the "Double" works only on double strollers and the "Select/Versa" fits Select and Versa strollers.  The car seat adaptors consist of two U-shaped, black, aluminum support bars and two black plastic adaptors that allow the support bars to attach onto the stroller. Black nylon straps secure the car seat to the adaptor on the stroller. The black support bars are labeled A and B.  The A support bar is the larger of the two U-shaped bars and has a red plastic tip with 10 holes.

 

Newer models have only four holes and are not being recalled. The model number is located on the lower right hand corner of the original package and the manufacturing date can be found on a sticker on the bottom of the package.
