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

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

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the company received seven reports of children placing their fingers in the stroller's canopy hinge while the canopy 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.
