Some 411,700 jogging strollers made by B.O.B. Trailers have been recalled because the back patch of the embroidered logo on the interior of the canopy can detach, posing a choking hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced today.

B.O.B. received six reports of children mouthing the detached patch. Gagging and choking were reported in two incidents, but backing was removed before injury. In each incident, the child was seated in an infant car seat attached to the stroller.

This recall follows a February recall of 357,000 B.O.B. jogging strollers due to a strangulation hazard posed by canopy drawstring.

The recalled strollers were sold in single seat and double-seat models for $280 to $600 at REI, Babies R' Us, and other children's product and sporting goods stores between November 1998 and October 2011. The strollers were manufactured between November 1998 and November 2010. The B.O.B. Ironman or Stroller Strides brand is embroidered on the stroller canopy.

Consumers should remove the logo backing. For more information consumers can call B.O.B. Trailers at 855-242-2245 or visit
