Graco is recalling some 2 million older strollers because they could potentially strangle children, especially infants, who are not harnessed in the product.
The problem led to four fatalities and five reports of children injured between 2003 and 2005, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The models involved are Graco Quattro Tour strollers and travel systems that were made before November 2006 and MetroLite strollers and travel systems manufactured before July 2007. The strollers sold for between $90 and $250.
Here's how to tell if your stroller is on the list:
1. Find the model number on the stroller, which can be found on a label at the lower portion of the rear frame, just above the rear wheels or underneath the stroller. You can also find the model number by looking for another label on the metal bar under the front foot rest.
2. Then match the number with this list of recalled model numbers:
