NEW YORK • Kolcraft is recalling more than 96,000 Jeep Liberty strollers after at least 18 people were injured by tire blowouts, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.
The government watchdog group said there have been 39 reports of inner tube ruptures that have caused the wheel rim to break off and become a projectile. The incidents took place mostly when the tires were being inflated, causing cuts and bruises to arms, legs, torso and head or face.
Two of the injured were children standing near the stroller. There were also two reports of property damage.
