Shows what I know. Ever since the Million Maclaren Recall, I've been waiting for the CPSC to point out [sic] the fingertip amputation risk posed by the folding hinges on any/every other umbrella stroller, too.
And yet, the next 1.5 million finger-squashing strollers being recalled aren't umbrellas at all.
Graco has recalled three low-priced models: the Passage, the Alano, and the Spree, which were sold between October 2004 and December 2009 at discount stores everywhere, after at least five kids had their fingertips chopped off [at least two more just got smashed/lacerated]. The problem's not the hinge: it's an exposed, finger-munching canopy bracket [see photo].
There is a repair/cover kit available, but at this point, it'd just be easier to put kevlar mittens on the poke-happy little monkey whenever he's awake.
