Maclaren Stroller Recall

Friday, November 13th, 2009 by:

Does your child have a Maclaren umbrella stroller?

If so, you should visit the Maclaren site to order a free hinge repair kit.

The company is doing a voluntary recall for over 1 million Maclaren umbrella strollers manufactured in China since 1999. Recently, there have been 12 finger amputations caused by young children getting their fingers caught in the stroller’s side hinges when it’s being opened or closed.

Just fill out the recall form at the Maclaren site and the company will ship you a hinge repair kit the following week. (If you are Canadian, leave the state blank and fill out the rest of the from.)

    Apparently, MacLaren knew about the risk for these types of injuries for several years before doing anything and they only did something AFTER children had their fingers amputated.

    I like their products, but I’m not impressed with their company and will no longer buy their products.
