Additional Fingertip Amputations and Lacerations Prompt Reannouncement of November 2009 Recall of Strollers by Maclaren USA

This recall reannouncement involves all Maclaren single and double umbrella strollers sold prior to November 2009. The stroller’s hinge mechanism poses a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to the child when the consumer is unfolding/opening the stroller. Maclaren strollers sold after May 2010 have a different hinge design and are not affected by this announcement. Maclaren has received a total of 149 reported incidents with the strollers, including 37 reported injuries that occurred after the stroller was recalled in November 2009. These reported injuries include five additional fingertip amputations, 16 additional lacerations and 16 additional fingertip entrapments/bruising.

The Maclaren strollers were sold at juvenile product and mass merchandise retailers nationwide from 1999 through November 2009 for between $100 and $360.

Consumers who have not installed the hinge covers should immediately contact Maclaren USA at hingecovers@maclaren-usa.com to receive the free repair kit.
