Graco Strollers Recalled Because of Amputation Risk

About 1.5 million Graco strollers have been recalled in the United States after reports that canopy hinges on the products had amputated five children's fingertips and cut the fingertips of two other children.

The recall includes certain model numbers of the Passage, Alano and Spree strollers and Travel Systems, said Pennsylvania-based Graco Children's Products Inc., the Associated Press reported.

The strollers were sold at retail stores nationwide from October 2004 to December 2009. Consumers should stop using the strollers and contact Graco for a free repair kit, advised the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

People who want more information about the recalled strollers can phone 800-345-4109, the AP reported.
