Graco is recalling two of its popular lines of strollers, the Quattro Tour and MetroLite, after the strangulation deaths of four infants were linked to them, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

Deaths in strollers are rare (about two a year on average) and this is believed to be the first stroller recall ever linked to a death. This stroller recall is particularly alarming given that the deaths occurred between 2003 and 2005 and parents have been unaware of the danger.
