Massive Graco Stroller Recall After Infant Deaths

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Some Graco strollers have killed four children, prompting a massive recall. The recall involves older versions of the Graco Quattro Tour™ and MetroLite™ strollers and travel systems manufactured prior to the existence of the January 2008 voluntary industry standard which addresses the height of the opening between the stroller’s tray and the seat bottom.

According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), entrapment and strangulation can occur, especially to infants younger than 12 months of age, when a child is not harnessed in the recalled strollers. An infant can pass through the opening between the stroller tray and seat bottom, but his/her head and neck can become entrapped by the tray.

This recall involves Graco Quattro Tour™ strollers and travel systems manufactured prior to November 2006 and MetroLite™ strollers and travel systems manufactured prior to July 2007. The strollers and travel systems were distributed between November 2000 and December 2007. The model numbers are printed on a label at the lower portion of the rear frame, just above the rear wheels or underneath the stroller. The name “Graco” appears on a label on the stroller tray and the headrest. Models included in the recall and photographs or the recalled products can be accessed on the CPSC’s website at:

The strollers, which were manufactured in China, were sold at AAFES, Babies R Us, Burlington Coat Factory, Fred Meyer, Kmart, Meijers, Navy Exchange, Sears, Target, Walmart, and other stores nationwide between November 2000 and December 2007 for between $90 and $190 for the strollers, and between $190 and $250 for travel systems.

The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Graco for a free repair kit. Graco can be reached, toll-free, at (877) 828-4046 anytime, or at the firm’s website at Consumers can continue use of the stroller as a “travel system.” When the stroller is used with the infant car seat, the entrapment and strangulation hazards posed by the space gap are not present. For additional information, consumers can also contact Graco at (800) 345-4109 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.
