The product liability lawyers at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation again remind consumers of a recent, stroller recall involving B-Agile Double, B-Agile, as well as BOB Motion strollers - instituted in conjunction with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission ("CPSC").
The product defect associated with these various, recalled infant strollers involves a hinge on the folding mechanism of the stroller which can perform traumatic amputations of children's fingertips. This hinge mechanism has additionally caused broken fingers and severe lacerations, amongst other serious injuries, when the release button is pressed while simultaneously pulling the release strap on the stroller.
The product liability attorneys at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation have previously blogged (extensively) in the past with regard to defective products involving children - or defective products which otherwise injure or cause harm to children. A link to those blog sites can be found here:
