UNDATED (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Atlanta-based Graco Children's Products Inc. is recalling two million strollers because of reported strangulation and entrapment.

The recall is linked to the strangulation deaths of at least four children. In some situations children can also become entrapped in the stroller leaving the child with cuts and bruises. If the child is unharnessed the infant can slip through the leg opening which can cause the infants neck to become entrapped with the possibility of strangulation to follow.
The recall includes older versions of Graco's Quattro Tour and MetroLite Strollers and travel systems sold between November 2000 and December 2007.

The strollers were manufactured before a January 2008 voluntary industry standard that required a bigger opening between the stroller's tray and the seat bottom.

The strollers were sold at nationwide stores like Babies R Us, Burlington Coat Factory, Kmart, Meijers, Sears, Target, and Wal-mart.

The model numbers involved in recall include:
