Nearly 5M baby strollers recalled over potential amputation risk
An estimated 4.7 million baby strollers in the U.S. are being voluntarily recalled by its manufacturer due to amputation risks, CNN reported on November 21.
Reports said nearly a dozen models of Century and Graco strollers manufactured in China may severely injure the fingers of children during use. The affected strollers reportedly are equipped with hinges on the sides that can cut off a finger. Several incidents of partial severing of children’s fingertips caused by the strollers reached Graco, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission stated. Parents and other caretakers are instructed to make sure that the hinges are completely in the lock position and to quickly remove the child from the stroller as it begins to fold. Graco reportedly will provide repair kits for owners of the affected strollers.
