Maclaren Stroller Recall: Poses Risk of Child Fingertip Amputation

About one million Maclaren strollers have been recalled because of a dangerous defectively designed hinge mechanism, which has cut off the fingertips of at least a dozen children.

The Maclaren stroller recall was announced on Monday by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) after Maclaren USA, Inc. received at least 15 reports of children placing their finger in the stroller’s hinge. At least 12 children in the United States reportedly had parts of their fingertips amputated as the strollers were being opened or unfolded.

The recall includes all Maclaren single and double umbrella strollers, about one million units total. Models affected by the recall include Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, TechnoXLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveler. The word “Maclaren” is printed on the strollers.
