Graco Stroller and Dorel Crib Recalls Announced

Dorel cribs and Graco strollers recalled

Two major product recalls for popular children's products have been announced in the past week. Graco issued a recall on 1.5 million strollers that can cause finger amputations, and Dorel recalled over 600,000 cribs because they pose suffocation and strangulation hazards.

The Graco strollers were sold at Wal-Mart, Target and other major retailers from October 2004 to December 2009. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the hinge on the canopy of the strollers can amputate children's fingers when the stroller is being opened and closed. There have been five reports of amputations so far. This recall comes just months after 1 million Maclaran strollers were recalled for posing a similar risk. The CPSC's website has a list of affected Graco strollers.

The recalled Dorel cribs were sold at K-Mart, Sears and Wal-Mart stores nationwide from January 2005 through December 2009. The CPSC and Dorel Asia have received 31 reports involving failure of the drop side hardware. This defect has been linked to one death and 10 injuries. There have also been 36 reports of slats breaking, which resulted in the bruising and scratching of seven children. You can look at this CPSC news release to see if your crib is affected.
