On January 27, 2010, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Health Canada, and Regal Lager Inc. announced a voluntary recall of approximately 1,100 Cybex strollers, due to a potential fingertip amputation and laceration hazard. The defective strollers have a hinge mechanism that can pose a hazard to children when the stroller is unfolded and opened.
The recall affects all Ruby, Onyx, and Topaz models of Cybex umbrella strollers, with “Cybex” printed on the side of the stroller.
The company has received one report of a child fracturing a finger in the hinge mechanism. The products were sold at various department and retail stores nationwide between August 2009 and November 2009.
Consumers are urged to stop using the recalled strollers immediately and contact Regal Lager at 800-593-5522 to receive a free hinge cover repair kit.
