MacLaren Stroller Recall
Do you, like millions of other parents, own a MacLaren umbrella stroller? We have the Techno XLR, which has faithfully served us since Sophie was born. Well, now MacLaren has announced a mass recall of every single stroller sold since 1999, due to the possibility of finger amputation by the opening/closing hinge mechanism. The company urges stroller owners to stop using their strollers immediately and call them toll-free at (877) 688-2326. MacLaren won't replace your strollers, but they will send you a repair kit. From what I can see, the hinge is no different from any other hinge on any other umbrella stroller, so even if you have a non-MacLaren stroller, be wary of this danger.
