Thousands of strollers made by a Richmond company are being recalled because they can collapse while a child is inside.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall on Wednesday. It applies to "Baby Jogger City Versa" strollers.
Roughly 8,400 of the strollers have been sold in the United States. So far, there have been six reports of incidents where the stroller's frame failed to lock. No children have been hurt in the strollers.
The recall involves all "Baby Jogger City Versa" model strollers manufactured between May 15 and August 20, 2012. The date of manufacture is printed on the stroller's black plastic side hinge below "Baby Jogger" and "City Versa."
The strollers have charcoal-colored metal frames with black, silver, red or green fabric stroller seats and canopies. They were manufactured in China.
