Maclaren Stroller Recall
November 9, 2009 by USA Post
British stroller maker Maclaren is recalling a million strollers, after receiving a dozen reports of children’s fingertips getting amputated in a hinge on the strollers.
The strollers in question were sold between 1999 and the present, according to a source familiar with the recall. The company has received a dozen reports of children’s fingertips getting amputated in a hinge on the strollers.
It’s a big recall volume-wise because the injury is irreversible.
The hinge is on the side of the strollers and there have been incidents with children getting into the strollers as well as when they’re already seated in the strollers.
Parents should immediately stop using their Maclaren strollers until they can get a repair kit. Maclaren will be providing a hinge cover via its Web site and a special phone line beginning tomorrow.
The recall was not set to be announced until tomorrow, so the precise model numbers have not been released. Please check back later today for more information.
