MacLaren Baby Strollers Cut Off Fingers, One Million Strollers Recalled

Comments (2)

injury, accident, accidents, wreck, crash, car, I-264, I-64, attorneyThere have been 12 reports of small children getting their fingers caught in MacLaren baby strollers resulting in the severing of their fingertips. In addition, there were three reports of finger lacerations. As a result, a major recall of one million strollers was issued by MacLaren, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The recall involves the single and double umbrella strollers that were sold at Babies R' Us, Target, and other retailers for the past 10 years. The models include the Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, Techno XLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller.

Here's a video discussing the MacLaren baby stroller recall...

MacLaren's solution is to send you a repair kit featuring a hinge cover that attempts to cover the problematic area. Personally, I'd recommend not using the stroller all together. Why? Because there's no guarantee that you'll be able to successfully apply the repair hinge properly.

Another risk is your child being able to remove the repair hinge and still having their little fingers exposed to 
serious injury. And if your child does suffer a serious injury like a severed finger, there will be large medical bills and years of physical and mental rehabilitation.

"You don't want this to happen to your child. It's already happened to 12 other children," said Patty Davis, a spokeswoman for the CPSC.

I've used the Maclaren Techno XT with both of young children - and I've never had a problem. I think parents just need to be extra cautious and always aware of what their little ones are up to avoid situations like this!
