||My mood while writing this blog:|
MONTREAL - Health Canada has recalled two models of strollers, saying the folding mechanisms pose "a risk of finger amputation."
The recall was announced Friday by Health Canada and the New Zealand manufacturer, phil&teds. There is a danger of someone losing a fingertip or being cut when the stroller is folded or unfolded, Health Canada said.
The company received complaints of three people catching their fingers in the stroller hinge in the U.S., and another six complaints worldwide.
There have been no reported accidents in Canada, where more than 7,200 of the strollers have been sold. The recalled models are the Sport v2 and Classic v1. People who own those strollers can contact the manufacturer to get a free hinge cover for their strollers.
