Health Canada has issued a recall for thousands of Dorel jogging strollers.
The recall involves single and double occupant swivel wheel jogging strollers that have a quick release mechanism for removing and re-attaching the front wheel.
There’s concerns the front wheel could detach and cause a crash.
