This isn’t a good deal alert, but I know I have a lot of mom readers – so I’m posting this as a public service announcement. 🙂
Maclaren USA, maker of high-end strollers, recalled one million strollers today after a dozen kids have lost fingers from the hinge mechanism.
Here’s an excerpt from an NPR article on it:
“The Consumer Product Safety Commission released information on the affected strollers today.
The recall applies to every umbrella stroller Maclaren has distributed in the US since 1999. The specific models are: Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, TechnoXLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller.
The CPSC says the strollers’ hinge mechanism, “poses a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to the child when the consumer is unfolding/opening the stroller.””
