Hedstrom To Voluntarily Repair Twin Totliner Strollers WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Hedstrom Company of Bedford, Pennsylvania, announced a voluntary repair program affecting approximately 34,200 Twin Totliner strollers manufactured between October 1975 and April 1982. The firm has received reports that 6 children have suffered broken legs after getting a foot caught between the stroller's two footrests. To eliminate the potential for injury if a child places a foot in the space between the footrests of the stroller which is designed to carry two children side by side, stop using the product immediately. These strollers were distributed nationally and in Canada. Hedstrom model numbers affected are: 15-063 15-163 15-562 15-5623 15,662 15-763 15-862 15-963 Also affected are Sears, Roebuck and Co. units with model number: 36494 and Sears Canada, Inc., formerly Simpson Sears, model number 66068. Look for the model number on an identification label attached to the frame of the stroller. Twin Totliner strollers manufactured after April 1982 have a single footrest and were not affected by this repair program. The firm is out of business and the repair program is no longer available. Please discard or destroy the product to prevent injuries. Consumers may also call the CPSC toll-free Hotline for information at 800-638-CPSC. A teletypewriter number for the hearing-impaired is (301) 595-7054.
