Four Infant Deaths Linked To Recalled Graco Quattro™ and MetroLite™ Strollers

In October, 2010, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) announced a recall of about 2 million Graco strollers due to risk of entrapment and strangulation. Reports surfaced that the manufacturer, Graco Children’s Products Inc., of Atlanta, Ga., received four reports of infant strangulations that occurred in its strollers between the years 2003 and 2005. Furthermore, the government became aware of five reports of additional infant entrapments, as well as one report of an infant having difficulty breathing.

Children who are not harnessed in the strollers at issue can reportedly pass through the opening between the stroller tray and seat bottom, with the potential for his/her head and neck to become entrapped by the tray.  Unsecured infants younger than 12 months of age were reported to be particularly susceptible to the hazard. Infants who become entrapped at the neck risk strangulation.

The recall targeted older versions of the Graco Quattro Tour™ and MetroLite™ strollers and travel systems manufactured prior to the implementation of the January 2008 voluntary industry standard which addresses the height of the opening between the stroller’s tray and the seat bottom. The voluntary standard requires larger stroller openings in an effort to prevent infant entrapment and strangulation hazards.
