The recalled strollers

UPPAbaby is recalling about 14,400 of its jogging strollers, due to an opening in the rear disc brakes that can cause injury to the finger of a non-occupant child, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced.

The recall includes  all UPPAbaby all-terrain RIDGE jogging strollers, which have an extendable canopy with a mesh window and zipper pocket, disc hand brake system and an adjustable handlebar with a wrist strap.  The brand UPPAbaby is on the front of the stroller, and RIDGE is on the side of the stroller frame. The strollers have a black frame and a fabric color scheme that is white (“BRYCE”), charcoal (“JAKE”), or slate blue (“REGGIE”) and have black tires. The serial numbers of the recalled products begin with “1401RDGUS” and appear on the right side of the stroller frame above the rear wheel of the stroller. The model number “1401-RDG-US” is printed on the left side of the stroller frame above the rear wheel of the stroller.

The company has received one reported incident, resulting in a fingertip amputation to a child who was not in the stroller.

The affected strollers have been sold at stores nationwide and online at Amazon from October 2021 through August 2022, for about $600.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says people should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact UPPAbaby to receive free replacement brake discs for both wheels.

Consumers can contact UPPAbaby by phone at 844-823-3132 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday; by email at support@uppababy.com ; or online by visiting www.uppababy.com/ridge/disc-brakes/ and clicking on “Submit Info” at the bottom of the page, or by visiting www.uppababy.com and clicking on “Click to read more” next to the recall announcement.
