Product Name: Instep, Instep Safari  and Schwinn Grand Safari swivel wheel jogging strollers with a front wheel quick release mechanism.

Description: This recall involves single and double occupant swivel wheel jogging strollers that have a quick release mechanism for removing and re-attaching the front wheel. Instep, Instep Safari and Schwinn Grand Safari strollers with the following model numbers are affected. The model number is located on the back of the stroller seat on a label.

This recall includes the following strollers:

Name Model Number

Hazard: If not installed properly, the front wheel can become loose and detach, posing crash and fall hazards. Neither Dorel Juvenile Canada nor Health Canada has received any consumer reports of incidents or injuries related to their use in Canada. In the United States, Pacific Cycle has received 132 reports of the front wheel becoming loose or unstable, resulting in 215 injuries, including head injuries, sprains, lacerations, bumps, bruises, and abrasions. Approximately 12,360 units of the recalled strollers were sold in retail stores across Canada from January 2010 to April 2016.

Corrective Action: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled jogging strollers and contact Pacific Cycle to obtain a free repair kit. The repair kit includes a replacement mechanism for securing the front wheel that uses a traditional screw on/off method of attachment instead of the quick release lever method of attachment shipped with the product. Consumers should not return the jogging strollers to the retailer where they were purchased. To obtain a free repair kit, consumers can contact Pacific Cycle by phone at 1-877-564-2261 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST or by email.
