UPPAbaby is recalling several models of its strollers and rumble seats due to a choking hazard. The bumper bar over the child's seat has a foam covering and pieces can easily be removed with a child's bite. The models being recalled are the 2015 Cruz, the 2015 Vista, and the 2015 RumbleSeat.

The Hingham, MA company has received 22 reports of children biting off a piece of foam. No injuries, however, have been reported. UPPAbaby is recalling about 71,000 strollers and rumble seats in the United States. For a complete list of the model and serial numbers subject to the recall, visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.

UPPAbaby products were sold nationwide at BuyBuy Baby and other juvenile retailers and online at Amazon from December 2014 to July 2015. The Cruz, Vista, and RumbleSeat sold for $500, $860, and $170, respectively.

Consumers are urged to immediately remove the bumper bar from the recalled items and to contact the firm to receive a free bumper bar cover and warning label. Customers can contact UPPAbaby at (844) 540-8694.
