Graco is recalling 4.7 million strollers after 11 children sustained finger injuries — some even suffering complete finger amputations — because of a design defect involving the hinges.

The Atlanta-based stroller company will provide customers with a free repair kit to remedy the problem.

The 11 models included in the recall are Aspen, Breeze, Capri, Cirrus, Glider, Kite, LiteRider, Sierra, Solara, Sterling and TravelMate Model Strollers and Travel Systems.

All strollers are single-occupant with a external sliding fold-lock hinge on each side and a one-hand fold release mechanism on the handle. They were sold from August 2000 through November 2014 both online and in-store at Target, Toys R Us, Walmart, Amazon.com, and Walmart.com, among other retailers. 

You can see the affected serial numbers and images of the strollers on the website of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
