Daily Outrage: Baby strollers recalled after 12 kids lose fingertips 

WHO: Maclaren USA

WHAT: The baby carriage maker is recalling about 1 million umbrella strollers after receiving reports of 12 American children who had their fingertips amputated by the side hinges in the past 10 years. Injuries increased during the past two years.

DETAILS: The hazardous strollers are made in China and have been sold since 1999 at retailers such as Babies “R” Us and Target, where they cost between $130 and $315.

WHAT’S BEING DONE: Maclaren will send all owners protective covers to prevent kids from sticking their fingers into the side hinges. Meanwhile, parents should keep children away from the carriages when opening and closing the canopies.
