Pacific Cycle Inc. recalled about 217,600 Schwinn and Instep swivel wheel jogging strollers because the front wheels can become loose and detach, posing crash and fall hazards.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said there were 132 reports of problems with the front wheels. The issue lead to 215 injuries, including cuts, bruises, sprains and head injuries.

According to the U.S. CPSC, the recall involves single and double-occupant strollers that have a quick release mechanism for removing and re-attaching the front wheel. Click here for a complete look at the affected models and numbers. 

The recalled strollers cost $130-$350 and were sold on the internet and in stores nationwide between January 2010 and June 2016.
