    Graco Strollers Recalled After Death of Four Infants

    Graco is recalling about 2 million Quattro Tour and Metro Lite strollers after it was reported four infants died trapped in the strollers. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission announced four infants became trapped inside the strollers and were strangled between 2003 and 2005. There have also been five additional reports of infants becoming trapped and suffering cuts and bruises as well as one infant who suffered difficulty breathing. If your child has been injured by any Graco Stroller, contact the defective product lawyers at AMA Law for a free consultation immediately.

    According the US Consumer Product and Safety Commission, infants can slide between the stroller tray and the bottom of the seat where they become trapped and could be strangled. The recalled strollers were all manufactured before 2007 and before the standard that requires a larger stroller opening between the stroller’s tray and seat bottom to prevent the tragic entrapments and strangulations that have occurred in these reports.

    The strollers 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.

    To see if you have a recalled stroller, you should check the model number. The model numbers are printed on a label at the lower portion of the rear frame, just above the rear wheels or underneath the stroller. The Graco Quattro Tour and Metro Lite models recalled are:

    This is not the first recall of Graco strollers this year. In January, about 1.5 million Passage, Alano, and Spree Graco strollers were recalled due to fingertip amputation and lacerations. According to the US Consumer Product and Safety Commission, the hinges on the stroller’s canopy pose a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to the child when the consumer is opening or closing the canopy. Graco 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.

    If you have a recalled Graco stroller, you should stop using the product immediately. You can also report the product to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, as well as any injury the defective product might have caused you.

    If your child or the child of someone you love has been injured or killed by a defective product like the Graco stroller, you should also know your legal rights. Contact a defective product liability attorney at AMA Law immediately to schedule a free initial consultation.
