Health Canada, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC), Mexico's Consumer Protection Federal Agency (PROFECO) and Graco Children’s Products Inc. have recalled the following models* of Graco single strollers and travel systems, as the folding hinges can pinch a child's fingers, causing a laceration or amputation hazard:
*Model numbers and manufacturing date are located on the stroller tubing frame label.
While there were no incidents reported in Canada, 11 finger injuries were reported to Graco in the United States, resulting in one laceration, six fingertip amputations, and four partial-fingertip amputations.
These Graco strollers also pose a safety risk
Affected customers are advised to contact Graco immediately for a free repair kit, which will be available at the beginning of December 2014. In the meantime, users are warned to use extreme caution when unfolding the stroller, and keep children away from the hinge area.
