NEW: 4 Deaths Prompt Graco Stroller Recall

Baby gear maker Graco is recalling about 2 million strollers after receiving reports of four infant strangulations in the strollers.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, which announced the recall Wednesday, said the infant strangulations occurred between 2003 and 2005.

The strollers being recalled are older versions of the Graco Quattro Tour and MetroLite strollers, all made before 2007.

CPSC says if a baby isn't strapped into the stroller, he or she can slide through the opening between the stroller tray and the bottom of the seat -- where the child can get stuck and be strangled.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Graco for a free repair kit. To order a repair kit, contact Graco toll-free at (877) 828-4046 anytime, or visit the firm's website by clicking the link below this story.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says consumers can continue use of the stroller as a "travel system." When the stroller is used with the infant car seat, the entrapment and strangulation hazards posed by the space gap are not present.
