Maclaren, the hip strollers that are made in England, has issued a voluntary recall on one million single and double umbrella strollers that have been sold in America from 1999 to present. Seems that about one dozen children have lost their fingertips (ouch!!) when opening the stroller. Maclaren will send a repair kit that will cover the hinge mechanism to make the stroller safe to use. Until then, may be a good idea to park it until you can get the hinge cover.
The models affected by the recall include: Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, TechnoXLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller from 1999 – 2009.
