Stroller Accessories Recalled after Reports of Babies Breaking Noses, Other Injuries

Reported injuries, including broken noses, have prompted a recall of over 80,000 baby stroller accessories.

The UPPAbaby company says they’re recalling Adapters included with the RumbleSeat accessory, due to the product detaching if the latch is misaligned upon installation or from a child forcefully kicking the seat from behind, posing a fall hazard to the RumbleSeat occupant.

“Our top priority at UPPAbaby is the safety of children,” the company stated. “We are committed to delivering products that are easy to use and provide the utmost in safety, function and convenience. We continuously review product designs to provide consumers with the best product and user experiences.”

Despite passing all tests and meeting all standards, UPPAbaby has received reports of RumbleSeat adapters sold prior to July 2019 detaching from strollers if the latch is misaligned upon installation or from a child forcefully kicking the seat from behind.

Consumers who own a RumbleSeat accessory, manufactured between September 2014 and July 2019, will be provided with replacement RumbleSeat adapters.
