Graco Children's Products is recalling 1.5 million strollers after some children had their fingertips amputated by canopy hinges.

The recall includes certain model numbers of Graco's Passage, Alano and Spree Strollers and Travel Systems.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the Pennsylvania company received seven reports of children placing their fingers in the stroller's canopy hinge while it was being opened or closed. Five children had their fingertips severed and two children received cuts on their fingertips.

The recalled strollers were made in China and sold by major retailers nationwide from October 2004 to December 2009. For more information, consumers can call 800-345-4109 or visit www.cpsc.gov.
