According to the ACCC, a consumer’s finger may become caught in the recalled Baby Stroller hinge while the stroller is being folded. If this happens, it presents a finger laceration hazard to consumers folding the Stroller.

Consumers may continue to use the Baby Stroller, but when folding press the release the button and then pull the release strap at the center of the seat with the same hand to avoid any risk of injury. Essentially keep your fingers clear of the hinge when folding. See the video on how to fold the stroller safely at www.britax.com.au
