1 Million Maclaren Strollers Recalled: Pose Fingertip Amputation Hazard
Posted on November 9, 2009
The CPSC reports that about one million Maclaren strollers have been recalled because the stroller's hinge mechanism poses a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to the child when the stroller is being unfolded. The CPSC says Maclaren has received 15 reports of children placing their finger in the stroller's hinge mechanism, resulting in 12 reports of fingertip amputations in the U.S.
Consumers are advised to immediately stop using these recalled strollers and contact Maclaren USA to receive a free repair kit. The CPSC listing is no longer available.
