Has there Been a Graco Stroller Recall?
If you own a Graco stroller, then you need to take note, as there has been a massive North American recall.
According to CNN, more than 4.7 million Graco strollers have been recalled after the manufacturer received reports of 10 full or partial fingertip amputations and one laceration.
The recalled strollers include 11 models and were sold from August 1, 2000 to September 25, 2014 at Target, Toys R Us, Wal-Mart and other retail stores nationwide and online. Affected models include Aspen, Breeze, Capri, Cirrus, Glider, Kite, LiteRider, Sierra, Solara, Sterling and TravelMate brands.
CNN reported that Graco received “six reports of fingertip amputation, four reports of partial-fingertip amputation and one finger laceration.” The company said that it would have a repair kit available to the public by December.
Until then, people are being asked to use “extreme care when unfolding the stroller to be certain that the hinges are firmly locked before placing a child in the stroller.”
What Should I Do If a Defective Product Injures My Child?
If a defective product has injured you, you can hold a manufacturer liable for your injuries through a lawsuit. Compensation obtained from a lawsuit can be used to pay for rehabilitation and therapy, which can be expensive when it pertains to an amputation.
We hold manufacturers liable when they put defective products out in the marketplace that injure children.
