Maclaren Umbrella Stroller Recall

Posted by Jenna | Tuesday, November 10, 2009

For those who own a Maclaren Umbrella Stroller or know someone who does, I wanted to pass along some information regarding a recall that was recently announced!

Maclaren is recalling nearly one million single and double umbrella strollers sold in the U.S. due to a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard for children. There is a side hinge mechanism which is a potential hazard to children's fingers when being opened and closed. The models included in this recall are: Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, Techno XLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller.

Maclaren is a well known stroller maker dedicated to safety, and has voluntarily announced the recall after hearing of several finger injuries taking place. It sounds like all strollers sold since 1999 are included in the recall. To make sure that the umbrella strollers are once again safe, they are providing those who have one of these strollers a repair kit which will cover a joint on the hinge mechanism.

You can learn more about the Maclaren Umbrella Stroller Recall on their website.
