JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – UPPAbaby is issuing a recall for over 14,000 RIDGE Jogging Strollers because of an issue with the rear disc brakes, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
UPPAbaby said the all-terrain RIDGE jogging strollers have rear disc brakes on them that have openings that can cause amputation or laceration if a child’s finger gets caught in the openings while the stroller is in use.
This recall involves all jogging strollers manufactured between October 2021 and August 2022, which have an extendable canopy with a mesh window and zipper pocket, disc hand brake system and an adjustable handlebar with a wrist strap.
