One million Maclaren baby strollers have been recalled by the company in conjunction with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. The recall was prompted by 15 reports of children placing their fingers in the hinge mechanism resulting in 12 finger amputations. The affected models included Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, TechnoXLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller. The high-end stroller retails for $100-$360.
The popular stroller is manufactured in China and is sold in the United States at Target stores as well as Babies “R” Us. The strollers have been available for purchase on the US market since 1999.
