News flash! All failures were with the quick release skewers not being secured. The product passed all safety testing. Quick release skewers are subject to operator error! So is a lot of stuff. Dumb operators hurt themselves and their wee little passengers. Such is the way it has been since man first walked the earth.
The jist of the article was political and skewed as anti-Trump, therefore my disappointment. The man does not need a nothing burger hit story to help bring him down. Shame on you WAPO.
It seems that because of Trump's latest presidential appointments to the makeup of the CPSC (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission) Board of Commissioners, the stroller is not to be recalled. The manufacturer was able to fight off a voluntary recall effort and a compelling recall lawsuit simply by holding off until the composition of the board shifted from democrat majority to republican majority.
My takeaway: F**k the politics of pubs v. dems!!! How about the CPSC and the Ad Council of America team up their government agencies and produce a TV commercial about how good it is to jog with your infants; and, oh by the way, this is how one is to correctly affix the front wheel quick release skewer! No lawsuits, no product recalls, no politics, no wheel falling off accidents, just good old fashioned quality products safely used while enhancing health and wellness.
PS: I am all for the CPSC and what they do. On review of their website, I note they have currently recalled a Salsa branded road bike (Quality Bike) for fork failures and a Stromer electric bike for stem failures. Well done CPSC. Nothing in there about recalling all bicycles and wheels of the quick release skewer style.
