JBF’s Corporate Product and Recall Specialist Kami Snowbarger works with the CPSC to educate parents year-round. She reached out to Graco and the CPSC when she learned Graco was no longer manufacturing the repair kit for the strollers. JBF decided to step in and help families by offering a special “Buy Back” program.

Families can bring the recalled strollers to one of three JBF events in Indianapolis. JBF has expanded and added new events to help more families save & earn money. In exchange for the recalled stroller, JBF will provide a $25.00 gift card to shop at the JBF event in North Indy. JBF will return the stroller to Graco and it will be destroyed.
