MacLaren Recalls Strollers

» Written by // November 11, 2009 // ,


One of the leading manufacturers of baby strollers, Maclaren, has recalled one million strollers which pose an amputation danger for children’s fingers.  The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that 12 children had suffered fingertip amputations after getting them stuck in the closing hinge mechanism of the strollers.

ARVE Error: id and provider shortcodes attributes are mandatory for old shortcodes. It is recommended to switch to new shortcodes that need only url

In response to the recall, Maclaren has developed a free kit which covers the side hinges of the stroller for any consumers who have purchased one of their strollers during the past decade.  Placement of the kit over the hinge protects children from the hazard of amputation.

The voluntary recall affects multiple models of strollers, which are described as single and double umbrella strollers with the word “Maclaren” printed on the side of the stroller.  The models involved include Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, Techno XLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller.

This recall follows on the heels of the late October news involving of another baby product, the “My Baby Soother” pacifier, distributed by T&L Trading Corporation in New York, because the pacifiers failed to meet federal safety standards because the nipples can easily separate from the base, posing a choking hazard to infants and toddlers.  The CPSC urged parents to stop using these pacifiers after T&L Trading Corp. refused to recall their product.

These news items underscore the importance of caregivers closely following the news and recalls made available on the CPSC website both prior to and after the purchase of products for use with young children.
