Graco has recalled almost five million strollers after 11 reports of injuries, including six fingertip amputations and five partial fingertip amputations. The recalled strollers were sold from August 2000 to November 2014 in Target, Toys R Us, Walmart, and in other major retail stores as well as online. The 11 models recalled are Aspen, Breeze, Capri, Cirrus, Glider, Kite, LiteRider, Sierra, Solara, Sterling and TravelMate and Travel System strollers. The folding hinge on the stroller sides can pinch a child’s finger and can cause fingertip lacerations or amputations.
