The Georgia injury lawyers at Finch McCranie, LLP have seen many serious injuries and wrongful death caused by dangerous products. Last week the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in Washington, announced that Graco, a company that specializes in making baby related merchandise, is recalling about 2 million strollers after receiving reports that four infants died in the strollers. They said the four infants became trapped inside the strollers and were strangled. The deaths occurred between 2003 and 2005. According to the announcement, the strollers being recalled are older versions of the Graco Quattro Tour and MetroLite strollers and travel systems, all made before 2007 and distributed by Graco Children’s Products Inc. of Atlanta.
According to the CPSC, if babies are not strapped into the strollers properly, they can slide through the opening between the stroller tray and bottom of the seat – where they can get stuck and be strangled. The recalled strollers were made before the development in 2008 of a voluntary standard that requires a larger troller opening between the stroller’s tray and seat bottom in order to prevent entrapment and strangulation.
