INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Millions of strollers are being recalled because of an amputation hazard.
Graco is recalling 11 models of strollers and travel systems sold during a 14-year period because the folding hinge on the side could cut off a child’s finger. Graco says the recall involves Century brand strollers that have the sliding fold-lock hinge and a one-hand fold release button on the handle.
So far, Graco has received 11 reports of finger injuries, including six reports of fingertip amputation, four reports of partial-fingertip amputations and one child got cut.
The strollers were manufactured from Aug. 1, 2000 to Sept. 25 of this year. They were sold at Target, Toys R Us, Wal-Mart and online.
Anyone with a stroller is eligible for a repair kit for the stroller. The repair kit includes covers for the hinges.
