The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has reannounced a voluntary recall of Maclaren strollers sold prior to November 2009. Approximately one million units have been subject to the recall since its announcement in November 2009. The recall involves all Maclaren single and double umbrella strollers sold prior to November 2009. The word “Maclaren” is printed on the stroller. The strollers were sold at juvenile product and mass merchandise retailers nationwide from 1999 through November 2009 for between $100 and $360.
The stroller’s hinge mechanism poses a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to children when the stroller is unfolded/opened. 149 incidents have been reported to the company, including 37 additional reported injuries following the November 2009 recall. These injuries include five additional fingertip amputations, 16 additional lacerations and 16 additional fingertip entrapments/bruising. At the time of the original recall, there were 15 incidents, including 12 reports of fingertip amputations in the United States.
