Earlier this week, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a major recall of Maclaren strollers. The stroller recall serves as a reminder that parents need to be ever vigilant when it comes to baby gear. Up to 1 million strollers were voluntarily recalled after discovering the amputation and laceration risk they pose to kids' fingers.
