Maclaren Recalls One Million Strollers

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.

British stroller maker Maclaren and the Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling approximately 1 million strollers after the company receiving a dozen reports of children's fingertips getting amputated by a hinge on the strollers.

The strollers in question were sold between 1999 and today.

It's a big recall in terms of the number of units affected, and because the potential injury is irreversible.

The recall includes all Maclaren single and double umbrella strollers, and the word "Maclaren" is printed on the stroller. The models involved include Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, TechnoXLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller.
