Fingertip Amputation Reports Lead to Recall of Kolcraft Contours Options Strollers

By Grant Law Office on June 27, 2012

Three reports of children suffering amputation of their fingertips after their fingers were caught in a pinch point on a Kolcraft Contours Options stroller have prompted Kolcraft Enterprises, Inc., Health Canada, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to recall approximately 36,000 strollers.

The recall covers three- and four-wheeled models of the Kolcraft Contours Options stroller with model numbers ZL002, ZL005, ZL008, ZL015, and ZL018. The handlebar adjustment mechanism can create a gap when it is being locked or unlocked. An adult or child can be injured if his or her fingers become lodged or trapped in the gap. The reports of injury the CPSC has received so far include reports of amputations and of crush injuries suffered when fingers got stuck in the gap.

The strollers were sold in the United States and Canada between January 2006 and November 2009. They come in various colors. Major retail chains like Target and Toys “R” Us carried the strollers, as did a number of smaller specialty stores and some online retailers like Amazon.com.

Kolcraft is providing a free repair kit to owners of the Contours Options strollers. To receive one, call Kolcraft at (800) 453-7673 or visit www.kolcraft.com to learn more. In the meantime, do not use the stroller or allow children to use it or play with it to prevent a child injury accident.

All consumer products should be reasonably safe, especially those used by children who cannot always see or predict dangers.
