Stroller Recall Announced After Fingers Severed


Ouch! The US Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a joint recall with the Colorado-based producers of jogging strollers, the AP reported on January 21. The reason for the recall are “reports of injuries to adults whose fingers became caught in the hinge mechanism, including a fingertip amputation.” The recall affects 22,000 phil&teds strollers.
Being in good shape isn’t worth a finger…Consumers are advised to stop using the strollers and contact phil&teds USA at 877-432-1642 to arrange for the shipping of a free hinge-cover kit.
