Graco stroller recall: 1.5 million

By Ben Rooney, staff reporter


NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- About 1.5 million Graco strollers have been recalled because they could pose a risk of fingertip amputations and lacerations to children, federal safety officials announced Wednesday.

The recall includes certain models of strollers and travel systems made by Graco Children's Products, including the Graco Passage, Alano and Spree Strollers and travel systems, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

Safety officials recall 1.5 million Greco strollers and travel systems after five children had their fingers severed by faulty hinges.

The hinges on the product's canopy pose a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to the child when the consumer is opening or closing the canopy, the CPSC said.

Graco has received seven reports of children injured when they placed their fingers in the stroller's canopy hinge mechanism, including five fingertip amputations and two lacerations, according to the commission.

The CPSC said consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Graco to receive a free protective cover repair kit.

The recalled strollers were sold at Babies "R" Us, Toys "R" Us, Kmart, Sears, Target, Walmart and other retailers nationwide from October 2004 and December 2009.

The strollers had a suggested retail price of between between $80 and $90. The travel systems, which include a detachable car seat, sold for between $150 and $200. To top of page
