Graco recalls 2 million strollers

WASHINGTON (AP) - Baby gear maker Graco is recalling about 2 million strollers after receiving reports of four infant strangulations in the strollers.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, which announced the recall Wednesday, said the infant strangulations occurred between 2003 and 2005. The strollers being recalled are older versions of the Graco Quattro Tour and MetroLite strollers, all made between 2000 and 2007.

CPSC says if a baby isn't strapped into the stroller, he or she can slide through the opening between the stroller tray and the bottom of the seat - where the child can get stuck and be strangled.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Graco for a free repair kit.

To order a repair kit, contact Graco toll-free at (877) 828-4046 anytime, or visit the firm's Web site.

Consumers can contact Graco at (800) 345-4109 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
