The stroller's hinge mechanism poses a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to the child when the stroller is being unfolded or opened.
This recall involves about 14,000 Britax "Blink" single umbrella strollers (plus an additional 900 in Canada). "Blink" is printed on the metal frame on both sides of the stroller, below the hand grips.

The model number and manufacturing date can be found on a white label on the stroller frame, near the bottom of the stroller basket.
