U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Kelty Announce Recall of Speedster Jogging Stroller

On October 14, 2005, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the Kelty Division of American Recreation Products of Boulder, CO, announced a voluntary recall of the Kelty Speedster Jogging Stroller.

The stroller’s handle-locking clips can unlock during use, causing the stroller to collapse.  Kelty has received two reports of handle clips unlocking during use.  No injuries have been reported.  

The recalled stroller has an aluminum frame and a cloth seat, with a sun canopy.  It has model number 20050016 and serial numbers S1000001D0504 through S1000800D0504 and S1000001D0506 through S1000200D0506.

Each stroller has a tag, located inside the child’s sear compartment, which lists the model name and number.  A sticker on the rear frame lists the serial number.  There are two yellow handle-locking clips, one on each side of the stroller frame that secures the handle from movement.

Two hundred and thirty strollers are involved in the recall.  They were sold at juvenile baby product stores, sporting good stores, and Web retailers from May 2005 through July 2005 for $250.

Consumers should stop use immediately and call Kelty at (800) 535-3589 between 8 AM and 5 PM Mountain Time Monday through Friday to arrange the return of the affected units to Kelty.  A full refund, plus a free daypack, is provided for all units returned by consumers.
