Jeep Liberty Stroller Recall

Jeep Liberty Stroller Recall (CPSC / February 4, 2008)

These Jeep Liberty Strollers by Kolcraft are being recalled.

According to a press release from the Consumer Product Safety Commission:

The inner tube of the tire on the stroller can rupture causing the wheel rim to fracture and fly off as a projectile, posing a risk of bodily injury and property damage.

Kolcraft and the CPSC have received 39 reports of inner tube ruptures causing the wheel rim to fracture and fly off as a projectile. Of these, 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 and 16 adults received abrasions, contusions and/or lacerations to their arms, legs, stomach or head/face. Two of the reports included property damage.

These strollers were sold at Tpys R Us, Sears and Burlington Coat Factory.
