Maclaren Recalls 1 Million Strollers due to Reports of Injury


Washington, DC: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today reannounced a voluntary recall of about 1 million Maclaren strollers sold prior to November 2009, following reports of 149 alleged incidents with the strollers, including 37 reported injuries that occurred after the stroller was recalled in November 2009. These reported 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.

This reannouncement involves all Maclaren single and double umbrella strollers sold prior to November 2009. The word "Maclaren" is printed on the stroller. Maclaren strollers sold after May 2010 have a different hinge design and are not affected by this announcement.

The strollers were sold at juvenille product and mass merchandise retailers nationwide from 1999 through November 2009 for between $100 and $360.
