If your son or daughter has been injured by a recalled stroller, high chair or car seat, you need to contact an attorney, who can help you seek compensation. Children should not have to suffer through expensive therapy and rehabilitation, because a manufacturer did not fully test a device for safety issues.

Sadly, CNN reported that Graco has recalled about 4.7 million strollers after reports of 10 full or partial fingertip amputations and one laceration. The recall affects 11 models, including strollers with the names Aspen, Breeze, Capri, Cirrus, Glider, Kite, LiteRider, Sierra, Solara, Sterling and TravelMate.

In addition to America, the recall extends into Canada and Mexico. To see if your stroller was involved in this recall, you can click here.

“Caregivers are advised to immediately remove the child from a stroller that begins to fold to keep their fingers from the side hinge area,” the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement.

Graco said that it would be able to offer a repair kit to consumers beginning in December.
