Kolcraft Strollers Recalled After They Caused Finger Amputations, Crushed Fingers And Other Hand Injuries

by The Beasley Firm  |  June 14, 2012  |  

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a statement today indicating that Kolcraft is recalling more than 36,000 strollers after receiving reports that children’s fingertips were cut off or amputated and adults who had crushed or cut their fingers in the hinge of the strollers. The injuries occurred when the side hinges were being locked or unlocked.

The model numbers of the recalled Kolcraft Contours Options include: ZL002, ZL005, ZL008, ZL015 and ZL018. The recalled strollers include both the 3 and 4-wheeled strollers that were manufactured in China from 2006 to the present and sold for $150-$160.

If you have one of the recalled strollers please stop using it until you receive a free repair kit from Kolcraft.

Defective Products or product liability claims typically fall within three categories: manufacturing defects, design defects, and failures to warn.

  • Manufacturing defects occur when products are manufactured and are different from the intended design and the product defect causes injury or death.
  • A design defect occurs when products present a safety hazard in their design, such as when a circular saw lacks a safety guard.
  • Failures to warn often occur when the manufacturers do not provide adequate warnings or instructions, which should caution the consumer of a known danger, risks, or side effects.

If you or your child was injured due to a defective product, please feel free to contact one of our experienced product liability lawyers for a strictly confidential and free consultation.
