    Graco has recalled about 4.7 million strollers in the United States due to a fingertip amputation risk, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Thursday.

    Graco has received 11 reports of finger injuries, including fingertip and partial-fingertip amputations. The recalled also affects over 212,000 strollers in Canada and Mexico.

    Eleven models of Graco and Century-branded strollers are being recalled. The models named in the recall are: Aspen, Breeze, Capri, Cirrus, Glider, Kite, LiteRider, Sierra, Solara, Sterling and TravelMate.

    The affected models were sold at Target, Toys 'R' Us, Walmart and other retailers nationwide from August 2000 through November 2014 for about $40 to $70 for the stroller and about $140 to $170 for the travel system. The strollers were also sold online at Amazon.com, Walmart.com and other online retailers during that time period.

    All of the models are single-occupant strollers with an external sliding fold-lock hinge on each side and a one-hand fold release on the handle.

    Model numbers and the date of manufacture are printed on a white label on the bottom of the stroller's rear leg.
