Hazard: The car seat adaptor support bars can fail, and children can fall out.
Description: The car seat adaptors come in three models and are used to secure infant car seats onto Baby Jogger strollers. The “Single” model fits all single strollers (model BJ90121), the “Double” works only on double strollers (model BJ90221) and the “Select/Versa” fits Select and Versa strollers (model BJ90321). The adaptors have two U-shaped, black, aluminum support bars and two black plastic adaptors that allow the support bars to attach onto the stroller. The black support bars are labeled A and B. The A support bar is the larger of the two U-shaped bars and has a red plastic tip with 10 holes. Newer models have only four holes and are not recalled. Recalled models were manufactured between April 1 and Sept 20, 2012.
