Graco has issued a recall on Aspen, Breeze, Capri, Cirrus, Glider, Kite, LiteRider, Sierra, Solara, Sterling and TravelMate Model Strollers and Travel Systems because the folding hinge on the sides of the stroller can pinch a child’s finger, posing a laceration or amputation hazard. For a complete description and list of model numbers go here. The recalled items were sold at Target, Toys R Us, Walmart and other retail stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Walmart.com and other online retailers from August, 2000 through November, 2014 for about $40-70/stroller and about $140-$170/Travel System. Consumers should contact Graco immediately for a free repair kit which will be available at the beginning of December, 2014. While waiting for a repair kit, caregivers should exercise extreme care when unfolding the stroller to be certain that the hinges are firmly locked before placing a child in the stroller. Caregivers are advised to immediately remove the child from a stroller that begins to fold to keep their fingers from the side hinge area.
