Graco is recalling three stroller models following reports of finger amputations to children.
The models affected are Gracoâ€™s Passage, Alano, and Spree strollers and travel systems.Â Model numbers can be found here.
The hinges on the canopy of the strollers pose a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to children when a consumer is opening or closing the canopy, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Graco has received seven reports of children placing their fingers in the stroller’s canopy hinge mechanism while the canopy was being opened or closed, according to the CPSC.Â This has resulted in five fingertip amputations and two fingertip lacerations.
The recalled strollers were manufactured between October 2004 and February 2008, and were sold at stores including Burlington Coat Factory, Babies â€œR” Us, Toys “R” Us, Kmart, Target, and more.
Consumers who own a recalled stroller should stop using it immediately. For more information on the recall and how to obtain a free protective cover repair kit, call (800) 345-4109 or visit cpsc.gov.
