Graco has issued a safety recall notice this morning. It is is second company to recall strollers in the past few weeks. Their website is very very slow today as I am sure every concerned parents are trying to find more information. Well I managed to get onto the site after a long wait and decided to post the excerpt from Graco’s website. I thought it might be useful info for other patrents as the models affected are listed.
