The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and phil&teds USA Inc., of Fort Collins, Colo., said the company’s Jogging Strollers can cause a consumer’s finger to become caught in a hinge mechanism when folding, posing potential risk of injury.

The company has received at least three reports of injuries to the strollers’ adult users, including a finger tip amputation.

The strollers were sold at various locations throughout the U.S. and Canada from May 2008 through July 2010.
