Kolcraft Strollers Recalled Due to Projectile Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 19, 2013)
Kolcraft Enterprises, along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, today announced they are voluntarily recalling 96,000 Jeep Liberty branded strollers in the US (510 in Canada), after receiving 39 reports of inner tube ruptures that cause the wheel rim to fracture and fly off as a projectile. Of these reports, 18 included reports of injury, with 14 occurring while filling the tire with air by adult caregivers. Two children received lacerations to their chin or leg while standing near the stroller. 16 adults received abrasions, contusions and/or lacerations to their arms, legs, stomach, head or face. Two of the reports included damage to property.

The recall includes Kolcraft strollers with Jeep Liberty brand that were manufactured in China between June 2010 and September 2011. The three-wheeled strollers were sold at Burlington Coat Factory, Sears and Toys R Us nationwide.
