BIG Maclaren Stroller Recall

I follow a blog on my reader that is written by the authors of this book:

The book is a great resource rating different brands of baby items and really giving tips for getting the most for your money. The authors keep up to date info on the blog concerning recalls and problems with companies they recommend in their books. I've heard about many recalls through this blog! You can visit the Baby Bargains Book Blog here.

Yesterday, I read about a massive recall of Maclaren strollers. You can read Baby Bargain's post here. In short, ALL Maclaren strollers sold from 1999 to 2009 are being recalled after reports of 12 children having their fingers amputated by the side hinge! Wow. The company is going to provide owners with a cover for the hinge in order to protect little fingers.

You can visit Maclaren's website here to request a cover. At least it is an easy fix and you don't have to return your strollers. They do recommend you stop using the stroller until you cover the hinge just to be safe. I know Maclaren strollers are very popular and I'd bet a large percentage of our readers use one. (Believe it or not, I have never had one myself!)
