Kolcraft Enterprises of Chicago
In a move that surprised James O. Cunningham and other Orlando product liability lawyers, stroller manufacturer Kolcraft, along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), recently issued a voluntary recall of more than 36,000 strollers due to an amputation hazard. The recall affects 36,000 Kolcraft strollers sold in the U.S. and another 270 sold in Canada. According to the CPSC report, the fingertips of at least three children have been amputated and two adults suffered smashed fingers when they locked or unlocked the hinge mechanism on Kolcraft Contours Options strollers. The mechanism is used to adjust the handlebars on the strollers, and users’ fingers can be smashed or cut deeply by the metal.
