Recall - Contours Options three- and four-wheeled strollers by Kolcraft.

The following recall notice is from HSW:


Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission report of a recall involving Contours Options three- and four-wheeled strollers by Kolcraft. 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 presents an amputation and laceration hazard to children and the adults handling the stroller.

See HSW Products tab for specifics on the affected items (including additional photos).

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.

Sold at: Toys R Us and other juvenile product specialty stores and at Internet retailers in Canada. See Exposure tabs for specifics on distribution in Canada and the U.S.

Corrective Action:
Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact the company to receive a free repair kit.
