Britax also received 1,337 reports of strollers with damaged Click & Go mounts. The recall was also announced on the CPSC’s Facebook page.
After a thorough investigation of these incident reports, Britax found that damage to the stroller frame can occur when the stroller is stowed or dropped while the Click & Go receivers are still attached
Even though the ratio of incidents is less than 0.2%, that number is too high. We invest everything we have to deliver a safe product that parents can depend on. We’re already taking the appropriate steps to do better.
