Graco Stroller and Dopey Parent Recall

About 1.5 million Graco strollers have been recalled in the U.S. and Canada after reports that five children in the U.S. have had their fingertips severed by the stroller’s folding hinge mechanism.

Graco Children’s Products Inc., of Atlanta, Ga., says it has received seven reports in the U.S. of children placing their fingers in a stroller’s canopy hinge as the canopy was being opened or closed. Five had their fingertips severed and two received cuts.
