CPSC Reannounces Its 2009 Maclaren Stroller Recall After Additional Amputations and Lacerations Are Reported

On May 12, 2011, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reannounced its 2009 recall of approximately one million Maclaren strollers after receiving additional reports of amputations and lacerations caused by the stroller's hinge mechanism when the consumer is unfolding and opening the stroller.

The recall 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 are not affected by the recall announcement because they have a different hinge.

At the time of the original recall in November 2009, there were 15 reported incidents, including 12 reports of fingertip amputations in the United States.  To date, Maclaren has received a total of 149 reports of incidents with the strollers, including 37 injuries that occurred after the stroller was originally recalled in 2009.  The reported injuries include fingertip amputations, lacerations and fingertip entrapments/bruising.

The recalled strollers were sold at various juvenile product and mass merchandise retailers throughout the United States from 1999 through November 2009.  The strollers retailed for between $100 and $360.

Consumers who own the recalled strollers and have not yet installed the hinge cover repair kit should immediately contact Maclaren USA at [email protected] or (877) 688-2326 to receive the free repair kit.
