Graco recalled 11 different stroller models today due to the folding hinge on the sides of the stroller, which can pinch a child's finger, posing the risk of a cut or worse—an amputation. About 4.7 million strollers in the U.S. are affected under the Graco and Century-brand names, according to CPSC.gov.
The models (all manufactured between August 1, 2000 and September 25, 2014) are: Aspen, Breeze, Capri, Cirrus, Glider, Kite, LiteRider, Sierra, Solara, Sterling, and TravelMate. They are single strollers that were sold at Target, Toys R Us, Walmart and other retail stores, as well as online retailers including Amazon.com and Walmart.com. All have an external sliding fold-lock hinge on each side and a one-hand fold release mechanism on the handle. Graco has received 11 reports of finger injuries, including six reports of fingertip amputation, four reports of partial-fingertip amputation and one finger laceration.
Click through to find the serial numbers for each model—model numbers and the manufacture date are printed on the white label at the bottom of the stroller leg (above the rear wheel). If you have an affected stroller, contact Graco Children's Products immediately to order a repair kit at 800/345-4109 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or at gracobaby.com.
