CPSC issues stroller recall after reports of finger injuries

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced that Phil & Teds USA Inc. has issued a voluntary recall of the sport v2 and classic v1 jogging strollers because the product poses a finger amputation risk.

The CPSC says in their media release that there has been three reports of injuries due to the stroller including a finger tip amputation.

According to the release, the strollers were manufactured in China and sold throughout the U.S. between May 2008 and July 2010.

Consumers should contact phil&teds USA at (877) 432-1642 between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the company’s website at www.philandteds.com/support for a free-hinge cover kit to make repairs.
