The following recall has been announced:

STROLLERS

DETAILS: Contours Options three- and four-wheeled strollers manufactured by Kolcraft Enterprises Inc. of Chicago, Ill.; sold at juvenile product specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Target.com and ToysRUs.com from January 2006 to June 2012. The three- and four-wheeled strollers have the model number and date of manufacture printed on a label sewn into the edge of back of the seat pad. The strollers were sold in various color schemes. They were manufactured in China.

WHY: A child or consumer's finger can become caught in the opening formed when locking and unlocking the hinge mechanism which is used to adjust the handlebars on the strollers. This poses an amputation and laceration hazard to children and the adults handling the stroller.

INCIDENTS: Kolcraft and CPSC have received five reports of injuries involving the hinge mechanism, including reports of three children whose fingertips were amputated and two adults whose fingers were either smashed or lacerated.

HOW MANY: About 36,000 in the United States and 270 in Canada.

FOR MORE: Contact Kolcraft at 800-453-7673 Monday through Thursday between 8 a.m. and 6:45 p.m. EDT and Friday between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. EDT, or visit the firm's website at http://www.kolcraft.com .
