A U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announcement of the recall said, “Graco has received seven reports of children placing their fingers in the stroller’s canopy hinge mechanism while the canopy was being opened or closed, resulting in five fingertip amputations.” Among the retailers that sold the strollers are Babies R Us, Target, Kmart, Sears and Burlington Coat Factory.
