by in Recalls

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Graco Children’s Products, today announced a voluntary recall of about 1.5 million Graco Strollers and Travel Systems because the hinges on the stroller’s canopy pose a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to the child when the consumer is opening or closing the canopy.

Graco manufactured two different styles of hinge mechanisms for these stroller models. Only strollers or travel systems with a plastic, jointed hinge mechanism that has indented canopy positioning notches (see photo below) are included in this recall. The recalled strollers were manufactured between October 2004 and February 2008. The model number and manufacture date are located on the lower inside portion of the rear frame, just above the rear wheels.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Graco at (800) 345-4109 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at to receive a free protective cover repair kit.
