Reason for recall

phil&ted voluntarily issued the recall in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada because a consumer's finger could become caught in the hinge mechanism when folding or unfolding the stroller. This poses an amputation and laceration hazard. phil&teds received three injury reports -- one finger amputation and two finger lacerations.

What should you do?

The CPSC advises consumers to immediately stop using the strollers. Contact phil&teds. The company will ship a free hinge cover kit with instructions.
