Popular British baby stroller and accessory company Maclaren, which promotes itself as being stylish, innovative, and safe, issued a huge voluntary recall yesterday of close to one million folding strollers.
The stroller involved in the recall is the single and double umbrella style stroller, which includes models Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, TechnoXLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno, and Easy Traveller. The stroller poses a danger to children because the folding hinge can cut or even amputate children's fingers. The recall comes after 12 reports of fingertip amputation in the U.S.
According to Maclaren's website, owners of these strollers can obtain a free repair kit to cover the stroller's hinge mechanism. To find out more from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, click here.
