Stroller Recall Due to Fingertip Amputation Risk

Posted: January 24th, 2011 | Author: Austin-Personal-Injury-Blog

22,000 strollers made by phil&teds USA which were sold in America are now being recalled. The running strollers have a defective hinge which can be dangerous to fingers when opening or closing the stroller. Only three injuries from the strollers were reported before the recall was enacted; one of the injuries involved a fingertip amputation of an adult. The strollers which are being recalled are the sport v2 and classic v1 models which were sold from May 2008-July 2010. TheĀ defective products were made in China.

Last year, Graco was forced to recall 1.5 million strollers and Maclaren had to recall 1 million strollers after almost 20 children lost their fingertips because of defective mechanisms.

People who own these strollers are encouraged to return them or to order a free repair kit from their website.
