Two New Recalls: Graco Strollers and Dorel Asia Cribs
The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced two huge new recalls today. We’ve got the details:
Graco Strollers: 1.5 million strollers and travel systems—including the Passage, Alano, and Spree—were recalled because the hinges on the stroller’s canopy can lacerate or amputate a child’s finger during opening or closing. (Graco received 5 reports of amputations and 2 reports of lacerations.) Graco manufactured two different types of hinges for these models, and only the ones that have positioning notches are included in the recall. (Click here for hinge images.) The strollers were sold from October 2004 to December 2009. Go to gracobaby.com or call 800-345-4109 to see whether your stroller is included and to order a free protective cover repair kit. Stop using your stroller until you’ve completed the repair.
Dorel Asia Cribs: 635,000 cribs were recalled because of suffocation and strangulation hazards. The drop side can detach from the cribs and create a space in which a child can become entrapped and suffocate or strangle. In addition, the slats can break and a child can become entrapped and strangle. The cribs were sold from January 2005 to December 2009. Go to dorel-asia.com or call 866-762-2304 to see if your crib is included in the recall and to receive a free replacement kit.
