Today, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission in conjunction with Graco Children’s Products is announcing a voluntary recall of approximately 2 million strollers due to risk of entrapment and strangulation. It affects their Graco Quattro Tour and MetroLite strollers and travel systems which were produced before 2007 and distributed by Graco Children’s Products Inc. of Atlanta.
The recall was issued after four reports of infant deaths were reported. The deaths occurred between 2003 and 2005 and were caused by strangulation. In addition to the four deaths, the CPSC has been notified of five other infants becoming entrapped in the strollers.
Here is the complete list of Graco Strollers being recalled this week:
Quattro Stroller Travel System
MetroLite Travel System
According to the CPSC press release, the products “were sold at AAFES, Babies R Us, Burlington Coat Factory, Fred Meyer, Kmart, Meijers, Navy Exchange, Sears, Target, Walmart and other stores nationwide between November 2000 and December 2007 for between $90 and $190 for the strollers, and between $190 and $250 for travel systems.”
