Graco Strollers Due to Strangulation Risk


Another round of Graco strollers is being recalled – following a previous recall in early 2010 due to finger amputation risk – this time due to the risk of infant strangulation. Graco and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission are recalling about 2 million strollers after reports of at least four strangulation deaths linked to the recalled models.

The recall includes Quattro Tour strollers and travel systems manufactured prior to November 2006, and MetroLite strollers and travel systems manufactured prior to July 2007. The products were sold in the U.S. from November 2000 to December 2007.

Graco says entrapment and strangulation can occur, especially to babies younger than 12 months, when a child is not strapped in. An infant can pass through the opening between the stroller tray and seat bottom, and his head and neck can get trapped by the tray and his neck can possibly be strangled.

Parents are advised to stop using the strollers immediately. For a complete list of recalled models and information on a free repair kit, contact the company at www.gracobaby.com.

Additionally, visit the CPSC's Stroller Information Center for more information.
