    The recalled strollers are black with an accent color. The “gb” red box logo is printed on the harness and both sides of the stroller legs and “Qbit” is printed on the legs. The model number and manufacture date can be found on a sticker on the rear leg.

    The strollers were sold for about $180 at stores including Babies 'R' Us and online at websites including Albeebaby.com and Amazon.com from May 2015 through November 2016.
