More than one million Maclaren Baby Strollers are being recalled after 12 children had their fingertips amputated in the stroller hinges in the U.S., according to a CPSC news release.

The CPSC describes the hazard as the following on its Web site: “The stroller’s hinge mechanism poses a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to the child when the consumer is unfolding/opening the stroller.”

The recall includes Maclaren single and double strollers. The affected models include Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, TechnoXLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller.
