On November 9, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Maclaren USA announced the recall of one-million baby strollers due to reports of 15 incidents of personal injuries, 12 of which resulted in fingers being amputated.

 

When the Maclaren stroller is opened or unfolded, the hinge mechanism has a high risk of amputating or lacerating fingers.

 

The strollers in question were sold at Babies “R’ Us, Target, and other mass merchandise retailers across the U.S. from 1999 until November 2009 at a price of between $100 and $360.

 

All single and double umbrella Maclaren strollers are under the recall. The affected models are Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, Techno XLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno, and Easy Traveller.

 

The recall goes into effect on November 10. Consumers have been strongly advised to immediately cease the use of the recalled strollers and contact Maclaren USA for a free repair kit.
