(AP) - Pacific Cycle is recalling more than 217,000 jogging strollers because of a defective front wheel.

The company said the front wheel can become loose and detach on certain Instep and Schwinn models. The company has received 132 reports of such complaints, resulting in 215 injuries ranging from head injuries, cuts and sprains to bumps and bruises.

The recall involves single and double-occupant swivel wheel strollers that have a quick release mechanism for removing and re-attaching the front wheel. Models include the Instep Safari, Instep Grand Safari, Instep Flight, Schwinn Turismo, and Schwinn.

Consumers were advised to stop using the strollers and contact Pacific Cycle to get a repair kit to secure the front wheel. 

The company said consumers should not return the strollers to retailers where purchased.
