Graco stroller recall prompts federal review of all stroller safety

After the large Maclaren and Graco stroller recalls, the federal government is looking into the safety of all strollers. Here's what to look for.

After Wednesday's Graco stroller recall, the second recall in three months involving more than 1 million strollers, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission is broadly reviewing stroller-safety guidelines.

First it was the Maclaren stroller recall. Then, rival Graco announced this week it was recalling 1.5 million units. Now, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says it is "looking at the entire product line," of baby strollers "to see whether the standards are adequate to ensure the safety of children both inside and out of the stroller."

What that means is that parents should take a close look at their strollers, whether they've been recalled or not, says CPSC spokesman Scott Wolfson. The commission is advising parents to check their strollers for the presence of a pinch point that might be dangerous to children.

It's this pinching hazard that prompted November's recall of 1 million Maclaren strollers and Wednesday's recall of 1.5 million Graco Passage, Alano, and Spree strollers.
