The Instep Safari TT Double Stroller (01AR266CRED and 01AR265) is one of several models recalled by Health Canada.

Thousands of Dorel jogging strollers have been recalled in Canada over concerns the front wheel could detach and cause a crash.

Health Canada issued a recall Wednesday involving 12,360 single- and double-occupant swivel jogging strollers sold in Canada under the Instep, Instep Safari and Schwinn Grand Safari brands.

It said the quick-release mechanism to remove the front wheel could come loose and detach if not installed properly.

The Chinese-made strollers were sold between January 2010 and April 2016.

They include products with model numbers 01AR266CRED, 01AR265, 01153CCWU, 01AR180, 01SC701 and 04STAD12. The model number is found on the back of the stroller seat.

There have been no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada, but 132 instances in the United States resulting in 215 reported injuries, including head injuries, sprains, lacerations, bumps, bruises and abrasions.

Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the strollers and contact Pacific Cycle at 1-877-564-2261 to obtain a free repair kit. Strollers should not be returned to stores.
