Graco Stroller Recall

by The Kid's Doctor Staff

A leading baby gear manufacturer is recalling about 2 million strollers after receiving reports that four infants died in their strollers.

Graco is recalling several versions of the Graco Quattro Tour and MetroLite strollers and travel systems, all made before 2007 and distributed by Graco Children’s Products Inc. of Atlanta.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission  said the four infants became trapped inside the strollers and were strangled. The deaths occurred between 2003 and 2005.

CPSC says if babies aren’t strapped into the strollers properly, they can slide through the opening between the stroller tray and bottom of the seat where they can get stuck and be strangled. The commission also said it was aware of five reports of infants becoming trapped, resulting in cuts and bruises, and one report of an infant having difficulty breathing.

The recalled strollers were made before the development in 2008 of a voluntary standard that requires a larger stroller opening between the stroller’s tray and seat bottom in order to prevent entrapment and strangulation.

The recalled strollers were sold at retailers nationwide between November 2000 and December 2007.

More information on the model numbers involved in the recall can be found at the company’s website, www.gracobaby.com or by calling (877) 828-4046
