The recalls involve the Sports V2 and Classic V1 model single-seat jogging strollers. The three-wheel stroller has a metal frame and cloth seat and canopy.

The phil&ted's logo is located on the crotch piece of the harness on both models.

The strollers were sold in specialty juvenile stores nationwide from May 2008 through July 2010.
