New Recall On Graco Travel Systems

Today, the CPSC, otherwise known as the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, announced a recall on over 1.5 million strollers made by Graco company, and this recall is serious. Believe it or not, the reason for the recall is children's fingertips have been reported as being amputated or severly lacerated by a particular hinge on the following stroller and travel system models:

The Passage
The Alano
The Spree

With the recent release of cadmium being found in children's jewelry, and this recall, makes me wonder what products out there are safe for use. A parent's job is obviously to provide a safe environment for their children to grow up in and be healthy, but this is coming harder and harder to accomplish. In any event, if you have any of the above model strollers, be sure to get this issue corrected.
