Britax Child Safety is recalling some 717,000 strollers sold in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico after consumers reported injuries from malfunctions of two of its products.

The recall involves the Britax B-Agile and Bob Motion Strollers with Click & go receivers, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission on Thursday.

That comes after Britax received 33 reports of the stroller’s car seat portion unexpectedly detaching from the frame before falling to the ground. The malfunction has resulted in 26 reports of injuries to children, including scratches, bruises, cuts, and bumps to the head. Britax is also already aware of 1,337 reports of strollers with a faulty Click & Go receiver mount.

“Consumers should immediately stop using their Click & Go receiver mounts and contact Britax for a free repair kit for single strollers,” the recall read. “Owners of the recalled double strollers should stop using them with car seats attached. Consumers can continue to use their stroller or car seat independently without the car seat attached to the stroller.”

“Britax is committed to the safety of your child and we apologize for any inconvenience this matter may have caused,” Britax wrote in a statement on the recall posted on its own website.

The products were sold between May 2011 through February 2017 for between $250 to $470 with retailers including Babies R Us, buy buy Baby, and Target (tgt). The products were also sold online at Amazon (amzn), albeebaby.com, buybuybaby.com, diapers.com, and ToysRUs.com.

Britax has asked consumers to reach out to the company at stroller.recall@britax.com, or to visit the recall’s website.
