Baby strollers distributed by a Cobb County company are being recalled due to a potentially hazardous hinge.
The Repair Cybex strollers affected include the Ruby, Onyx and Topaz Models, according to manufacturer Regal Lager, based in Kennesaw. About 1,100 strollers were sold in the U.S., and another 90 were sold in Canada.
The strollers' hinge mechanism poses a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to the child when the stroller is being opened, according to information on the company's Web site.
The company has received one complaint of a child placing a finger in the hinge, resulting in a fracture.
The strollers, which cost between $140 and $260, were sold in department and juvenile product stores across the U.S. between August and November, according to Regal Lager. Those who own the strollers can contact the company for free hinge cover retrofit kit.
