The Graco stroller recall for 2010 affects the following models:
- Graco Passage
- Spree Stollers and Travel Systems.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the Pennsylvania company received seven reports of children placing their fingers in the stroller's canopy hinge while it was being opened or closed.
The recalled strollers were manufactured between October 2004 and February 2008. The model number and manufacture date are located on the lower inside portion of the rear frame, just above the rear wheels.
Last summer, Graco's convertible child beds were recalled after kids got trapped in them.
