November 20, 2014 - Health Canada announced today the recall of 8 single-occupant stroller models manufactured by Graco Children’s Products due to a folding hinge that poses a risk to children's fingers. While there have been no reports of injuries in Canada, several children in the U.S. have lost fingertips or parts of a finger.  The recalled Graco products include: Aspen, Breeze, Capri, Cirrus, Literider, Sierra, Sterling and other travel systems that were sold in Canada from August 2000 to November 2014.

If you own of these Graco strollers or travel system products, please call 1-800-667-8184 immediately for a free repair kit, which will be available at the beginning of December. The model number and date of manufacture can be located on the stroller’s tubing frame.

Health Canada recommends that while caregivers are waiting for a repair kit, exercise extreme caution when unfolding the stroller ensuring the hinges are firmly locked before placing your child in the stroller.

Over 200,000 of these strollers were purchased in Canada.
