Joovy Recalls Jogging Strollers for Fall Hazard

Joovy has recalled thousands of its Ultralight Jogging Strollers because the stroller’s front wheel bearing could fail or detach.

According to an alert posted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the dangerous defect could pose a fall or injury hazard for children in the strollers.

The recall involves Zoom 360 Ultralight Jogging Strollers with SKU 8060, 8061, 8067, and 8069 manufactured between March 2020 and October 2020.

Potential for Injuries

The strollers were sold in several colors including black, blueberry, charcoal, and red colors. The stroller label on the inside leg contains the SKU and batch numbers. The word “Joovy” is written across the front of the stroller and “Zoom Ultralight” is written on the parent organizer attachment on the bottom of the stroller. About 9,200 strollers are involved in this recall.

So far, Joovy has received reports of 25 incidents involving restricted front wheel movement including 12 incidents where the wheel fork bearing wore through the housing and detached. One fall resulted in bruises when the user fell onto the stroller. The strollers were sold at stores nationwide and online including Amazon.com, Joovy.com, BuyBuyBaby.com, and Target.com from May 2020 through December 2020 for about $250.

Those who have these strollers are asked to stop using them right away and contact the firm for a free repair kit to replace the front wheel fork bearing. Joovy is contacting all known purchasers directly as well. The recalled strollers were manufactured in China.

Product Liability Issues

Manufacturers of all products have a duty and a responsibility to make products that are safe for consumers. When their products have defects or safety issues, they also have a responsibility to warn consumers about those defects. If the safety defects have the potential to cause injuries or deaths, manufacturers are also required to recall the defective products.

When a dangerous or defective product causes serious injury or death, victims or families of deceased victims have rights. Injured victims can file a product liability claim against the manufacturer seeking compensation for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, permanent injury, pain and suffering and emotional distress. Families of deceased victims can file a wrongful death claim seeking damages as well. An experienced product liability lawyer will be able to advise victims or families in such cases regarding their legal rights and options.
