Hundreds of thousands of popular B.O.B. jogging strollers are being recalled because of choking concerns.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the backing on an
embroidered logo patch on the stroller's canopy can come loose.
CPSC says the firm has received six reports of children mouthing a
detached patch backing. Two cases involved choking and gagging.
Consumers need to remove the embroidery backing patch before
they can use the stroller. They can visit the website of B.O.B.
