(WPIX) -- Hundreds of thousands of strollers made by Britax are being recalled after dozens of children were hurt when the car seats suddenly detached from the stroller and fell, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.

Britax has received 33 reports of car seats unexpectedly disconnecting from the strollers and falling to the ground. In those instances, 26 children were hurt, suffering injuries that included scratches, bruises, cuts and bumps to their head.
