A popular stroller brand has issued a voluntary recall of one of its jogging strollers after a child's fingertip was amputated by the stroller's brake.

On Thursday, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and UPPAbaby announced the voluntary recall of over 14,000 UPPAbaby All-Terrain RIDGE Jogging Strollers in a press release.

These strollers — which have RIDGE on the side of the black frame and were sold in white (Bryce), Charcoal (Jake) and slate blue (Reggie) — have rear disc brakes with 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," according to the release.

Thus far, this is the only incident reported in relation to these strollers. The release also confirms the child was not seated in the stroller at the time of the incident.
