It’s been a while since there was a major recall, but this one is a doozy: Maclaren is recalling about 1 million umbrella strollers because the side hinge mechanism can cut off a finger, reports msnbc. Or a fat carrot, as the screen grabs show.
There have been reports of 12 finger amputations and three lacerations in the United States, reports the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Although the $100-$360 strollers are being recalled in the United States, warnings apparently suffice in Europe, according to this video report.
From the CPSC website:
This recall involves all Maclaren single and double umbrella strollers. The word “Maclaren” is printed on the stroller. The affected models included Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, TechnoXLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller.
