1.5 Million Strollers Recalled Due To Finger-Chopping Danger

If you’re a parent with a Graco stroller who values your child’s fingertips, you might want to take a look at this recall, in which 1.5 million of the rolling digit-guillotines are being summoned far, far away from munchkins until they’re repaired.

From an AP story on the recall:

The recall by Graco Children’s Products Inc. includes certain model numbers of its Passage, Alano and Spree Strollers and Travel Systems. The Exton, Pa., company received seven reports of children placing their fingers in a stroller’s canopy hinge as the canopy was being opened or closed. Five children had their fingertips severed and two children received cuts on their fingertips.

To receive a repair kit, contact Graco. For more information on the recalled strollers, visit cpsc.gov or call 800-345-4109.
