(WBNG Binghamton) Kolcraft is recalling about 36,000 Contours model strollers.
The product being recalled is the Contours Options, three and four wheeled strollers.
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.
Kolcraft and CPSC have received five reports of injuries, including reports of three children whose fingertips were amputated.
Strollers included in the recall have model numbers starting with ZL002, ZL005, ZL008, ZL015 and ZL018.
The strollers were sold from January 2006 to November 2009 at specialty stores and online at Amazon.com, Target.com and Toysrus.com.
Consumers should immediately stop using the stroller and contact the company to receive a free repair kit.
