Graco Recalls 1.9 Million Infant Car Seats – Here’s What You Should Do
In what is now the largest seat recall in American history, Graco Children’s Products has agreed to recall 1.9 million infant car seats.
From KATC –
“The recall, announced Tuesday, comes after a five-month spat between Graco and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Earlier this year the company recalled 4.2 million toddler seats because the harness buckles can get stuck. But it resisted the agency’s demand to recall the infant seats. Buckles can get gummed up by food and drinks, and that could make it hard to remove children. In some cases parents had to cut harnesses to get their kids out. The agency says that increases the risk of injuries in emergencies.”
The seats being recalled are the SnugRide, SnugRide Classic Connect (including Classic Connect 30 and 35), SnugRide 30, SnugRide 35, SnugRide Click Connect 40, and Aprica A30. They were manufactured between July 2010 and May 2013, according to NHTSA.
Graco also is offering to send free replacement buckles to ANY of their car seats, even if it’s not on the list of items recalled.
Graco says owners can check to see if their seats are included by going to www.GracoBuckleRecall.com or by calling (877) 766-7470.
