Britax recalls Blink stroller because of laceration hazard

Britax has recalled its Blink stroller because the hinge mechanism poses a finger laceration hazard.

Consumers are advised to use caution when opening or closing the stroller and ensure that children's fingers and hands are at a safe distance from the hinges when doing so.

People should to contact Britax to receive free hinge covers with instructions on how to use them. The free hinge covers and an instruction sheet will be mailed to all owners who have registered their stroller with Britax.
