WASHINGTON (AP) -- Britax is recalling about 216,000 strollers because of a risk to partially amputate fingertips, break fingers or cause severe lacerations, among other injuries, when pressing the release button while pulling on the release strap.

Britax Child Safety Inc. of Fort Mill, S.C., has received eight reports of incidents including one partial fingertip amputation, one broken finger and severe finger lacerations.

The B-Agile, B-Agile Double and BOB Motion single and double strollers were sold in various colors including black, red, kiwi, sandstone, navy and orange at major retailers and juvenile products stores nationwide and online retailers from May 2011 to June 2013 for $250 to $450.
