Maclaren is recalling the following strollers:

  • Triumph
  • Quest Sport
  • Quest Mod
  • Techno XT
  • Techno XLR
  • Twin Triumph
  • Twin Techno

Maclaren says infants and toddlers can cut or even amputate their fingertips in these strollers. They confirm 12 fingertip amputations across the country.

The stroller company has much more on this recall here, and they are offering a repair kit.
