WASHINGTON, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall of 224,800 strollers due to dangerous folding mechanisms that can break or amputate fingers.

The B-Agile, B-Agile Double and BOB Motion strollers made in China for Britax Child Safety Inc. of Fort Mill, S.C., were made between March 2011 and June 2013, and were sold nationwide from May 2011 through June 2013 for between $250 and $450.

The strollers were sold in a variety of colors, including black, red, kiwi, sandstone, navy and orange.

The company has received numerous reports of injuries including a partial fingertip amputation.

Consumers were advised to stop using the strollers and contact Britax for a free repair kit.

Consumers can call 866-204-1665 for information.
