Kolcraft Recalls Jeep Liberty Strollers

96,000 Jeep Liberty Strollers Recalled


Heads up, moms! Kolcraft has recalled 96,000 Jeep Liberty strollers because the inner tubes in the tires can rupture and cause the wheel rim to fracture and fly off, Today reports.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says at least 18 people have been injured by the tire blowouts — including two children standing near the strollers — resulting in cuts and bruises to the arms, legs, torso, head, or face. The recalled strollers were sold at Burlington Coat Factory, Sears, Toys "R" Us, and children's speciality stores online from June 2010 through June 2013, the news agency reports.

These tires come inflated and ready to use. However, any regular use will result in needing to reinflate these at home yourself. I loved my Jeep Liberty stroller so much, but I had to accept that I would need to reinflate before every single use. I also had to replace the inner tubes on several occasions. It's not a matter of "they come with air, so it's the factory's fault" because honestly, you WILL be reinflating yourself on a regular basis if you use this more than twice a week and on any terrain that isn't the floor of a shopping mall.

First off, why are those tires filled with air??? Secondly, are they trying to tell me that those little tires, with apparently hundreds of pounds of air inside, can rupture? What in the world did they fill that tire with? Argon?

They come already inflated in the box! So the user isn't the problem. The factory that manufactured them is. The last person the touch the tires and check for quality, is the responsible individual in this recall. A lot of times, I think that baby items are recalled because the user is too stupid to know how yo properly use something.....not in this case.

Inner tubes in these tires? So someone must put air in them? Perhaps they were just over inflated by the user? Just sayin'.....Any tube runs the risk of rupture if over inflated..
