Maclaren Strollers Pose Amputation Hazard

Rate This

About 1 million strollers made by British company Maclaren are being recalled after about a dozen reports of children's fingertips being amputated by a hinge mechanism on the side of the stroller.

Children have been injured when getting into the strollers and also while seated in the strollers, which have been sold since 1999, ABC News reported.

The recall involves all models of Maclaren single and double umbrella strollers including Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, Techno XLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller.

Consumers should stop using these strollers until they get a hinge cover that can be ordered from Maclaren, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
