UPPAbaby recalls adapters included with RumbleSeats

UPPAbaby recalls adapters included with RumbleSeats due the adapters can detach, posing a fall hazard to the child in the RumbleSeat.

Consumers who own a RumbleSeat accessory, manufactured between September 2014 and July 2019, will be provided with replacement RumbleSeat adapters. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled adapters and contact UPPAbaby to receive free replacement adapters.
