Graco Stroller Recall; Dorel Asia Crib Recall

Graco Recalls 1.5 Million Strollers, Dorel Asia 635,000 Cribs

If you're beginning to feel like nothing's safe anymore, you may be right. Following the largest stroller and crib recalls in history last year, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced two new baby equipment notifications overnight.

The largest of the two is Graco's recall of 1.5 million strollers due to faulty canopy hinges. Similar to Maclaren's recall of 1 million push chairs, Graco announced that children's fingers can be cut when the canopies of their Passage, Alano, and Spree strollers and travel systems are opened or closed. To date, two tots' fingers were cut and five lost their fingertips after getting caught up in the plastic hinges on the identified buggies. The company is offering repair kits to families who own the identified models.

The CPSC also announced the recall of 635,000 Dorel Asia cribs following the death of a 6-month-old child and injuries to 10 more. Similar to the Stork Craft issue last year, the drop sides of 20 affected models can detach, creating enough space for wee ones to become stuck and suffocate.

Have all of the recent recalls shaken you confidence in baby equipment?

If we'd stop making everything in China, maybe things would be safe again. If and when I have children, I'm buying a pram. No hinges, nothing. Just a classic English pram. I'm not taking any chances on a baby cutting his fingers off.

I always assumed that the hinges would amputate a little finger (my mom was kind of a worrier and installed some fears in me) so I never let my kids near the stroller when I was unfolding it or putting the canopy down anyway. I do feel like nothing is safe anymore. I am slowly throwing away all my 5 year old's fake jewelry when she isn't looking due to the cadmium scare.

I seriously feel like nothing is safe anymore. I also just found out about a mattel recall through a magazine ad ( Apparently they recalled lots of toys from 2007 on, we had a bunch and I didn't even know about it.
