(Newser) – Baby gear maker Graco is recalling about 2 million strollers after receiving reports of four infants deaths. The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the infants became trapped inside the strollers and were strangled. The deaths occurred between 2003 and 2005. 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 of Atlanta.

If babies aren't 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. Strollers made in 2008 and afterward have a safety improvement. Click here for details on model numbers and more background on the recall. (Read more strollers stories.)
