As parents on the go, moms and dads often rely on travel systems to transport their child from place to place without needing to carry them 24/7. That's why most of us will want to pay attention to news that popular kid product manufacturer Britax is voluntarily recalling 676,000 strollers due to a potential falling hazard.
The announcement, published on the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) website, makes this the biggest stroller recall since 2014 and comes after reports of 30-plus children falling while the strollers were in use.
Here's what parents need to know:
1. The Britax recall focuses on the Britax B-Agile and BOB Motion strollers amid concerns the Click & Go receiver mount on the stroller frame -- which allows parents to secure the coordinating infant car seat -- could cause the car seat to unexpectedly detach from the stroller. The CPSC estimates roughly 676,000 units sold in the US are included in the recall, along with close to 36,400 sold in Canada, and an estimated 4,600 sold in Mexico.

Yahoo Beauty mentions Britax is also aware of 1,337 strollers reported with damaged Click & Go receivers.
