Britax Child Safety Inc. in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada have issued a voluntary recall of about 14,000 baby strollers because the hinge mechanism poses a laceration and fingertip amputation risk to children riding in the stroller.
The recall involves all Britax “Blink” single umbrella strollers. The word “Blink” is printed on the metal frame on both sides of the recalled strollers. While there have been no reported incidents associated with this particular the CPSC is urging parents to stop using the strollers immediately and contact Britax to receive free hinge covers.
The recalled strollers were sold at Buy Buy Baby and other mass merchandise stores in the U.S. and Canada and online at Amazon.com, Babiesrus.com, Target.com, and Diapers.com
