UPPAbaby is recalling a stroller adapter used to attach a seat to a stroller after dozens of children have reportedly been hurt in falls. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the adapter can fail—and when that happens, your little rider can fall out and be hurt.
So far, the company has received 135 reports of this happening. In 77 accidents, children were injured. Two broke their noses.
Here's what you need to know, mama.
This affects the RumbleSeat accessory adapter, designed to be used with the UPPAbaby RumbleSeat. About 86,000 were sold between October 2014 and July 2019 for between $180 and $200.
The RumbleSeat attaches to the stroller with two plastic adapters. The faulty adapters were only included with RumbleSeat Models 0252, 0917 and 0918. You can find the model number on the underside of the RumbleSeat.
The faulty adapters have a black tab, not yellow. Adapters with yellow tabs aren't included in this recall.
There is good news: this can be easily fixed. UPPAbaby will send you free replacement adapters.
