Recall Alert: Children's Strollers and Tool Sets

October 18, 2011 Updated Oct 27, 2013 at 11:52 PM EDT

(WBNG Binghamton) Two companies, with two products geared toward children. Both have announced recalls before, but now they add another round. This week's recall alert features strollers and tool kits.

Single and double strollers have rolled out of children's product and shopping goods stores since the late nineties, now B.O.B suggests you roll the product away.

It's pulling 411,000 more of its strollers in the U.S., because of an embroidered logo patch on the canopy. It can detach, and cause babies and young children to choke if they put the patch in their mouths.

Gagging and choking were reported twice.

The recall affects all B.O.B. strollers sold between November 1998 and October. If you have such a stroller, call the company for instructions on how to remove the backing. You may reach B.O.B. at
(855) 242-2245 or go to its website, www.bobnotices.com.

This round of recalls comes after BOB recalled 357,000 units earlier this year because a canopy drawstring posed a strangulation hazard.

Meanwhile, Little Tikes also expands upon a recall, pulling more than 1.7 million of its Workshop and Tool Sets for children.

This is on top of the 1.6 million it took from shelves in August 2009.

It's because the tool sets contain oversized, plastic toy nails that may also cause children to choke. Little Tikes received two such reports before the 2009 recall; the 3.25 inch nails got lodged into two childrens' throats.

The nails were sold as part of 11 additional models, in red and blue from 1990 through 2004. The pricetag ran between $25 and $100.

If this set or these nails look familiar to you, contact Little Tikes at (800) 321-0183. You may also visit the company's website, www.littletikes.com.

It promises to send free replacement nails.
