Updated On: Dec 12 2012 06:10:54 PM EST
The stroller manufacturer, Baby Jogger of Richmond, Virginia, is participating in a voluntary recall of many of its City Versa strollers. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada issued the statement, which affects roughly 8,400 strollers sold in the U.S. and 2,200 sold in Canada.
The recall affects strollers manufactured between May 15th and August 20th, 2012. Frames of affected strollers can collapse, causing children to fall out of the seat. Baby Jogger has received six reports of incidents with the stroller's frame failing to lock. No injuries have been reported.
The date of manufacture is printed on the stroller's black plastic side hinge below "Baby Jogger" and "City Versa." "City Versa" is also printed on the stroller's fabric in the child's leg area. The strollers have charcoal-colored metal frames with black, silver, red or green fabric stroller seats and canopies.

The Baby Jogger City Versa was sold at: BuyBuy Baby and other juvenile product stores nationwide and online at buybuybaby.com, albeebaby.com, diapers.com and other online retailers.
