Amputated Fingers in Stroller Recall

Popular British stroller maker Maclaren—known for its high-end, city-friendly wares—is recalling one million strollers after receiving dozens of reports of children losing their fingertips in a hinge of the stroller. The large recall for models sold between 1999 and today reflects the fact that the potential injury is an irreversible one. Consumerist reports that Maclaren's Web site has suffered outages, perhaps due to the flood of worried parents checking whether their strollers are affected.
