Graco recalls 1.5 million strollers over fingertip amputation

"The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and stroller maker Graco today have issued a voluntary recall of about 1.5 million units over concerns that a hinge can amputate a child's fingertip or cause lacerations when the canopy is open or closed.

Owners of the affected strollers are being instructed to cease using the products immediately.

The models affected are: Graco's Passage, Alano and Spree Strollers and Travel Systems, the government safety agency said.

According to the CPSC, "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."
