Graco announced today that they were implementing a voluntary recall within the US for these products. The recall affects Quattro tour strollers and travel systems manufactured prior to November 2006 as well as MetroLite strollers and travel systems manufactured prior to July 2007. No other Graco strollers are affected by this notice.
The reason behind the recall is that there is a potential risk of entrapment to small children, especially to infants younger than 12 months of age, who are not properly harnessed into the stroller.
If you have an affected stroller, there is no need to return the product – a free repair kit is available and Graco recommends that you cease using the stroller until you have received the repair kit (it is still safe though to use as part of the travel system with the infant carrier attached).
For further information, including how to request the repair kit, please visit the recall and safety section of the Graco website.
