Maclaren Re-Announces Stroller Recall After More Injuries Are Reported

Comments Off

Maclaren USA, working in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Commission (CPSC), has re-announced a stroller recall. The original recall was issued in November 2009.

A fingertip amputation hazard prompted the stroller recall, which can occur when unfolding and opening the stroller. To date, the company has received 149 reports of incidents with the strollers, including 37 injuries reported after the November 2009 recall. At the time of the original recall there were 15 reported incidents, 12 of which included fingertip amputations.

All Maclaren single and double umbrella strollers sold prior to November 2009 are included in the recall. Strollers sold after May 2010 have a different hinge mechanism and therefore are not affected by this recall.

Consumers are urged to contact Maclaren USA to receive a free repair kit that includes hinge covers. Visit Maclaren at hingecovers@maclaren-usa.com or call them at (877) 688-2326.

In January, Phil&Ted USA also recalled strollers due to a fingertip amputation risk.
