Graco’s Stroller Death Risks Were Identified in 2004

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which is leading a recall of strollers from Graco Children’s Products Inc., six years ago warned an industry body led by a company employee about possible deaths in strollers.

Graco, a unit of Newell Rubbermaid Inc., today recalled about 2 million of its products after four babies were strangled from 2003 through 2005 in the Quattro Tour and MetroLite models, according to an agency statement. The CPSC urged the industry to redesign strollers as early as 2005.
