(RNN) - Britax announced Thursday it was recalling models of its B-Agile and BOB Motion strollers with the "Click & Go" receiver mounts since receiving reports of injuries from children falling from the device.

The voluntary recall affects 676,000 strollers in the U.S., the Consumer Product Safety Commission said. In addition, about 36,400 were sold in Canada and another 4,600 in Mexico.

This recall involves strollers when used as a travel system with a car seat carrier attached. Britax has received 33 reports of car seats unexpectedly disconnecting from the strollers and falling to the ground, resulting in 26 reports of injuries to children, including scratches, bruises, cuts and bumps to the head. 

Britax said people can continue to safely use the stroller without the car seat attached. Consumers should immediately stop using their receiver mounts and contact Britax for a free repair kit for single strollers. Owners of the recalled double strollers should stop using them with car seats attached.

The company is aware of 1,337 reports of strollers with damaged Click & Go receiver mounts. All models are folding, single or double occupant strollers, and all colors of the stroller are included. 

The model number can be found on the inside of the stroller’s metal frame near the right rear wheel for single strollers and in the front middle underside of the frame on double strollers.

The strollers were sold at Babies R Us, buy buy Baby, Target and other stores nationwide, and online at Amazon.com, albeebaby.com, buybuybaby.com, diapers.com, ToysRUs.com and other websites from May 2011 through February 2017 for between $250 and $470 for the strollers and travel systems.
