Other than the Toyota fiasco, I have not written very much about product liability or product recalls in the past. I think it is important to point out to parents that late last year, England stroller manufacturer, Maclaren, recalled their Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, Techno XLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller stroller models.
They recalled over one million strollers sold in the United States between 1999 and 2009 after 12 reports of childrens’ fingertips being cut off. MSNBC reported the apparent issue: “A side hinge mechanism poses a hazard to children’s fingers when the umbrella stroller is being opened or closed, the company says.”
Even something simple items like a stroller hinge can be dangerous to babies and toddlers if not manufactured correctly and safely.
