Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Parents – here’s another big recall you want to pay attention to. Graco® is recalling nearly 5 million of its strollers because of a problem with the side hinges used to fold the strollers. The hinges may cause harm to children’s hands and fingers, in some cases even cutting fingers off.

The recall includes 11 Graco stroller models made between August 2000 and September 2014 and sold in retail stores nationwide as well as Canada and Mexico. The models include:
• Aspen
• Breeze
• Capri
• Cirrus
• Glider
• Kite
• Literider
• Sierra
• Solara
• Sterling
• TravelMate

If you have any of the recalled strollers, please contact Graco for a free repair kit at www.gracobaby.com or call (800) 345-4109, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. EST. In the meantime, please take great caution when folding and unfolding the stroller. Be sure the hinges are firmly locked before placing your child in the stroller.
