Strollers recalled, pose amputation risk

Phil&teds USA Inc. of Fort Collins, Colo., has voluntarily recalled about 30,000 jogging strollers imported from China because of amputation risks, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada.

Consumers should stop using the strollers immediately.

When folding and and unfolding the stroller, a person's finger can become caught in a hinge, posing a hazard of cuts or amputation.

Phil&teds has received three reports of injuries to adults including the amputation of a finger tip

About 22,000 strollers were distributed in the United States and 7,200 in Canada.

The recall involves sport v2 and classic v1 model single-seat jogging strollers. The three-wheel strollers have a metal frame, cloth seat and a canopy. The sport v2 model stroller was sold in red, orange, green, black, charcoal, navy and in graffiti print

The strollers were sold by specialty juvenile stores nationwide from May 2008 through July for between $350 and $450.
