Graco recalls 2-million strollers due to strangulation risk.

Two million strollers are being recalled after being linked to four infant deaths.

Graco is recalling the strollers after receiving reports of four infant strangulations in the strollers. The strollers being recalled are older models of the Graco Quattro Tour and Metrolite made before 2007. Safety experts say if a baby isn't strapped into the stroller, they can slide through the opening between the stroller tray and the bottom of the seat, get stuck and be strangled. Graco says it's received four reports of infant strangulation occurring between 2003 and 2005 and six reports of infants becoming trapped.

If you have the stroller you should contact Graco at (877) 828-4046 or www.GracoBaby.com to receive a free repair kit.
