RECALL: Doll Strollers Sold at Pottery Barn Kids After Child's Fingertip Was Severed

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Lan Enterprises of Oregon last week announced a voluntary recall of about 21,000 Mini Zooper Doll Strollers. A child’s finger can become caught in the rectangular metal clip or the black plastic side hinge, and this can sever a child’s finger tip. Also, the strollers pose an entrapment hazard. Pottery Barn Kids has received three reports of serious lacerations, including one partial finger severing on a 2-year-old boy. The Mini Zooper Doll Stroller has a silver metal frame with a bright pink cotton canvas seat cover. “Pottery Barn Kids” is printed on a label on the canvas seat cover. They were sold exclusively at Pottery Barn Kids retail stores nationwide, catalog and Web site from October 2005 through June 2007 for about $50 and were manufactured in China.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled doll strollers away from children and contact Pottery Barn Kids for instructions on receiving a repair kit. For additional information, call Pottery Barn Kids at 888-367-0144 between 7 a.m. and 12 a.m. ET daily or visit the firm’s Web site at http://www.potterybarnkids.com/cust/index.cfm

It seems like there is a new product recall every few days. I am especially concerned about all the recalls on batteries and office products. I now have a personal file that alerts me to baby furniture recalls. I also receive timely notices when one of my children's toys has been recalled. You can receive the recalls and update notices at the product blog page.
