Finger Amputation Risk Leads to Huge Graco Stroller Recall

Finger Amputation Risk Leads to Huge Graco Stroller Recall

November 20, 2014 — Graco is recalling about 5 million strollers after receiving 11 reports of finger injuries, including amputation and lacerations.

The problem is that the fold-up strollers have a hinge on the side of the stroller, which can pinch a child’s finger.

According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC):

“Graco has received 11 reports of finger injuries including six reports of fingertip amputation, four reports of partial-fingertip amputation and one finger laceration.”

What Should I Do?

Graco recommends contacting the company “immediately” for a free repair kit. In the meantime, if you must use the stroller, “exercise extreme care” — do not place a child in the stroller until you are sure that the side hinges are fully locked. If the stroller begins to fold up with a child inside, immediately remove the child and be sure their fingers are away from the hinges.
