Pushchair amputation risk recall
Source: BBC News

The amputations happened when children placed their finger in the hinge while the pushchair, or stroller, was being unfolded.

The recall involves all Maclaren single and double umbrella pushchairs.

The firm has urged consumers to stop using the pushchairs immediately and to contact it for a repair kit.

2. God, that makes my fingers hurt just thinking about it.
One amputation should have been enough.

3. We got a Maclaren for my son on his current trip
It's going back to the store. Heard complaints that it was not comfortable and the settings were difficult, etc.

Back to the City Jogger and prayer that the next trip (on Thanksgiving Day) won't damage the jogger.

8. Yeah, well, we got the Bugaboo and the City Jogger
We're taking the City Jogger to Vegas with us.

He's VERY comfy with it.
