Graco initiates stroller recall after four reported infant deaths
The popular Graco brand of strollers has announced a recall after a strangulation hazard was discovered in some of the brand’s strollers and travel systems.
The recall was jointly announced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and Graco and affects two million strollers manufactured before 2007. The reported deaths occurred between 2003 and 2005, and it is not clear why the recall came so long after the incidents.
