Health Canada recalls thousands of Dorel swivel jogging strollers

Chinese-made Instep, Instep Safari and Schwinn Grand Safari brands identified.


OTTAWA — Thousands of Dorel jogging strollers have been recalled in Canada over concerns the front wheel could detach and cause a crash.

Health Canada issued a recall involving 12,360 single- and double-occupant swivel jogging strollers sold in Canada under the Instep, Instep Safari and Schwinn Grand Safari brands.

It said the quick-release mechanism to remove the front wheel could come loose and detach if not installed properly.

The Chinese-made strollers were sold between January 2010 and April 2016.

They include products with model numbers 01AR266CRED, 01AR265, 01153CCWU, 01AR180, 01SC701 and 04STAD12. The model number is found on the back of the stroller seat.

There have been no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada, but 132 instances in the United States resulting in 215 reported injuries, including head injuries, sprains, lacerations, bumps, bruises and abrasions.

Dorel Industries Inc., based in Montreal, designs and manufactures for three areas: juvenile products, bicycles and other recreational products, home furnishings.
