Recalled Maclaren Strollers Oh ouch. U.S. Consumer Product Safety people and Maclaren Strollers just recalled a million strollers after discovering that flaws in the hinge mechanism were amputating babies’ fingertips. Maclaren received 15 reports of children getting their fingers caught in the hinges when the stroller was being closed or opened – 12 of those kids had their fingertips cut off. The recall includes all Maclaren single and double umbrella strollers ($100-$360) purchased between 1999 and 2009. For details on the models involved and how to get a free repair kit, visit the CPSC recall page.
