The first recall is on the Britax B-Agile, B-Agile Double, and the BOB Motion Strollers.

Specifically models made between March 2011 and June 2013.

A hinge on the stroller can partially amputate (one case reported), lacerate, or break the operators finger. There have only been 8 reported cases total.

You can go to their websites, www.britaxusa.com or www.bobgear.com and click on “Safety Notice.” You can also call 866-204-1665 or email them at strollerrecall@britax.com

The second recall is on Dehumidifiers that can reportedly overheat and catch on fire. Yikes.

The models are GE 30, 40, 50, and 65-pint dehumidifiers. Apparently they have started quite a few fires. For more information you can call 866-853-2802 or visit their website, www.greeusa.com, and click on “Recall.”
