ANOTHER IMPORTANT RECALL - GRACO STROLLERS

About 1.5 million strollers made by Graco Children's Products are being recalled after reports of children's fingers being cut when the canopy is opening or closing. The recalled strollers are Graco's Passage, Alano and Spree strollers and travel systems.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall after Graco received seven reports of children being injured when their fingers got caught in canopy hinge as it was being opened or closed. Two children's fingers were cut and there were five reports of children losing their fingertips.

The recalled strollers were manufactured between October 2004 and February 2008. The manufacture date and model number can be found on the lower inside portion of the rear frame, just above the rear wheels.

Children's fingers can get caught when the canopy is being raised or lowered.

Graco made two styles of hinges for the strollers. Those on the strollers being recalled are plastic, jointed hinges with indented notches for positioning the canopy. For a complete list of the model numbers of recalled strollers and travel systems, visit the CPSC's Web site HERE .

Anyone with a recalled stroller should stop using it and contact Graco at 800-345-4109 to receive a free protective cover repair kit. The company's Web site is http://www.gracobaby.com/.
