Graco Stroller Recall: Not just Maclaren Amputating Fingers

According to a report on the CPSC website, there is a Graco Stroller recall due to fingertip amputation and a laceration hazard. This is caused by the hinge canopy hinge mechanism, the same problem that occurred with the Maclaren stroller towards the end of last year.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that Graco are recalling 1.5 million Graco Passage, Alano and Spree and Strollers and Travel Systems. Details on specific hinge mechanisms can be found here.

The hinge on the canopy can cause serious injury to your child, with possible amputation or laceration of the fingertip when you are opening or closing the canopy. According to the CPSC they have received reports that seven children have placed their fingers in the hinge mechanism, the result was five fingertips being amputated and two with lacerations to the fingertip.

These strollers affected apply to ones manufactured on October 2004 and February 2008. The Graco strollers were sold at stores such as, Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us, Burlington Coat Factory, Kmart, Target amongst others. For more information visit CPSC or call (800) 345-4109.
