Maclaren stroller users, please know that this Tuesday, November 10 Maclaren will be issuing a press release regarding a voluntary recall of nearly 1 million of their strollers sold between between 1999 and 2009. The affected models include Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, Techno XLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller.
The company, who posted information on their Web site (www.maclarenbaby.com) , received a dozen reports of children's fingertips being amputated or lacerated due to the unfolding and opening of the stroller.
As a Maclaren user, I learned that this does not mean that we have to send our strollers back. In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Maclaren will be providing its customers, for free, a kit to cover the stroller's hinge mechanism.
+ Sit tight until tomorrow
+ Don't use your Maclaren in the mean time
+ Reach out to the company once the press release is out and secure your hinge cover for your stroller
Once the hinge cover has been installed then it is recommended to use your Maclaren stroller again for it to be safe.
