LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Graco is recalling about two million strollers because of a danger to infants and small children. There have been four reports of strangulation and five of entrapment.  Kim Dulic demonstrated that an infant can move about inside the stroller, and slide down all the way up to the neck and a baby's head gets trapped right at the tray. It poses an entrapment and strangulation hazard.

The recall covers the Graco Quattro Tour strollers, the Passage Travel Systems, and the MetroLite strollers. However, these are older models sold between November 2000 and December 2007. A wider opening on newer models has eliminated the hazard, so if you have one of the older models, Graco is offering a repair kit.

The commission strongly advises the use of harness straps on all strollers to make sure your baby is riding safely.
