Childcare brand UPPAbaby is recalling a line of its premium jogging strollers due to a risk of amputating children's fingers.
The company's RIDGE brand jogging strollers utilized a back-wheel braking system which can severely cut or even sever a child's finger if stuck inside.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a recall of approximately 14,000 products, which retail for around $600 each.
The CPSC said it received one report of a child's fingertip being amputated.
"Our top priority at UPPAbaby is the safety of children," the company said, announcing the recall. "We conduct extensive testing to ensure UPPAbaby products meet all global industry and regulatory standards. Despite passing all tests and meeting all standards, UPPAbaby received one report about the all-terrain RIDGE stroller."
