In November 2009, Maclaren USA, Inc. announced a voluntary recall of approximately one million strollers due to fingertip amputation and laceration hazards. The company has received 37 new reports of additional injuries since that time, and is thereby reannouncing the recall to educate consumers about the stroller hazards and the voluntary repair kit.
All Maclaren single and double umbrella strollers sold prior to November 2009 are affected by the recall; Maclaren strollers sold after May 2010 have a different hinge design and are not affected by the announcement. The strollers were sold at children’s stores and mass merchandise retailers nationwide from 1999 through November 2009 for between $100 and $360.
Maclaren is offering free hinge covers upon request to consumers who purchased the old style hinges prior to 2010. To receive a free hinge cover, consumers can contact Maclaren at (203) 354-4400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
