Baby stroller recalled due to finger injury

A recall for all UPPAbaby all-terrain RIDGE jogging strollers was issued Thursday after a report of a fingertip amputation to a child who was not in the stroller while in use.

In the report, it was stated that the stroller’s rear disc brakes have openings that can cause amputation or laceration if a non-occupant child’s fingertip gets caught in the openings while the stroller is in use.

Anyone who uses the UPPAbaby all-terrain RIDGE jogging stroller should stop using the stroller immediately and contact UPPAbaby to receive free replacement brake discs for both wheels.

The strollers have an extendable canopy with a mesh window and zipper pocket, disc hand brake system and an adjustable handlebar with a wrist strap. The brand UPPAbaby is on the front of the stroller, and RIDGE is on the side of the stroller frame.

The strollers also have a black frame and a fabric color scheme that is white, charcoal or slate blue and have black tires.

The serial numbers of the recalled products begin with “1401RDGUS” and appear on the right side of the stroller frame above the rear wheel of the stroller. The model number “1401-RDG-US” is printed on the left side of the stroller frame above the rear wheel of the stroller.

The stroller was sold at BuyBuyBaby, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Pottery Barn Kids and other children’s stores and specialty stores nationwide. It was also sold online at from October 2021 through August 2022 for about $600.
