Graco Stroller Recall

Attention Moms, Dads, Grandmas and Grandpas!

Information about the most recent stroller recall straight from Graco's website:

Quattro Tour™ and MetroLite™ Stroller Recall

Potential Problem: Entrapment and strangulation can occur, especially to infants younger than 12 months of age, when a child is not harnessed. 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. Infants who become entrapped at the neck are at risk of strangulation.

Injuries Reported: 9

Number of Units Affected: About 2 million

Dates Produced: Quattro Tour™ strollers and travel systems manufactured prior to November 2006, and MetroLite™ strollers and travel systems manufactured prior to July 2007.

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

Click here to order a repair kit from this website, or contact Graco toll-free at (877) 828-4046 anytime.

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.
Colors can vary.
