Graco recalls 1.5 million strollers for finger amuptation hazard

Today Graco’s Children Products Inc. announced it is recalling 1.5 million strollers due to a hazard of fingertip amputation and laceration. Stroller models affected by this recall include the Graco’s Passage, Alano and Spree Strollers and Travel Systems. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the hinges on the stroller’s canopy pose a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to the child when the consumer is opening or closing the canopy.

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, resulting in five fingertip amputations and two fingertip lacerations.

This recall affects the following model numbers and hinge mechanisms:
