The following Voluntary Recall Notice is from HSW:


Event Hightlights
Event Update: Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission report of recalls involving B.O.B.® single and double strollers. The stroller's drawstring can get wrapped around a child's neck, posing a strangulation hazard. In addition, it is possible for a child to remove the embroidery backing of the embroidered logo on the stroller canopy and put this material into their mouth, posing a potential choking hazard. 
See HSW Product Details tab for specifics on the affected items.

In the United States, the firm has received one report of an 11-month-old girl who got entangled at the neck by the stroller’s drawstring.

The firm has received six reports of children gaining access to, removing and inserting into their mouth, the embroidery backing of the stroller canopy's embroidered logo while seated in an infant car seat that has been attached to a B.O.B. Infant Car Seat Adapter. 
Strangulation hazard: Affected strollers were sold at various specialty stores and online retailers primarily between April 2002 and late spring 2010.

Choking hazard: Affected strollers were sold at various specialty stores and online retailers from November 1998 to present.
