WASHINGTON (AP) _ About a million Maclaren strollers sold by Target and Babies "R'' Us are being recalled after 12 reports of children having their fingertips amputated by a hinge mechanism.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the recall includes nine models of Chinese-made single and double umbrella Maclaren strollers, which have been sold around the country since 1999.
The fingertip amputations occurred when children placed their fingers in the hinge mechanism of the recalled strollers. The company is offering free repair kits to fix the stroller problem. Details are available at http://www.cpsc.gov
