The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is recalling more than 2 million strollers and traveler systems. The CPSC is recalling these strollers because babies may be at risk of getting trapped in the strollers.
The recall is for Graco Quattro Tour strollers made before November 2006 and Graco MetroLite strollers made before July 2007. These strollers and traveler systems were sold in stores nationwide between 2000 and 2007. Newer versions of these strollers aren’t part of this recall because they include safety measures that were updated in 2008.
Babies, especially those younger than 12 months, can get trapped if they aren’t strapped in properly. A baby can pass through the opening between the stroller tray and seat bottom, but his head and neck can become trapped by the tray. This can lead to injury, or in some cases, strangulation.
Earlier this year, CPSC recalled other Graco strollers and traveler systems because babies were at risk of injuring their fingers.
