Recall on Graco Strollers

There has been a major recall on over 200,000 Graco strollers. The affected models include Graco’s Aspen, Breeze, Capri, Cirrus, Glider, Literider, Sierra and Sterling, sold between 2000 and 2014. The folding mechanisms of the stroller can cut or even chop off a child’ fingers.
What to do if you own one

Health Canada says the Graco website is now taking orders for retrofit kits. But those kits won’t be available until the beginning of December.

In the meantime, Health Canada says parents and caregivers should be cautious when putting the child in or taking the child out of the stroller, keeping the child away from the hinge area when they’re opening and closing the stroller.

Customers with questions or concerns can contact the Graco customer service team by email at:service@graco.net or by phone at 1-800-667-8184.

Please check your stroller and share this recall with your friends and family to ensure the safety of children.
