WASHINGTON, D.C. - About a million Maclaren strollers sold by Target and Babies "R'' Us are being recalled after 12 reports of children having their fingertips amputated by a hinge mechanism.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the recall includes nine models of Chinese-made single and double umbrella Maclaren strollers, which have been sold around the country since 1999.

The fingertip amputations occurred when children placed their fingers in the hinge mechanism of the recalled strollers.

The company is offering free repair kits to fix the stroller problem. A full list of all recalled models are available at http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml10/10033.html You can also call the following numbers for more information: Firm's Recall Hotline: (877) 688-2326
CPSC Recall Hotline:
(800) 638-2772

***UPDATE***

Consumers can contact Maclaren at 877-688-2326 or visit www.maclaren.us/recall to receive a free repair kit.

Maclaren said the kit includes hinge covers designed to fit all Maclaren strollers.

The recall affects the following models, which range in price from $100 to $400: Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, TechnoXLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno, and Easy Traveller. To top of page

I didn't have one of these, but I have seen so many mom's with them, that I figured I better post it. I would hate for any other babies to get their fingers hurt...
