Graco Recalls 3.8 Million Car Seats

February 20, 2014

On February 12, 2014, Graco announced a recall of 3.8 million toddler convertible seats and harnessed booster seats. In the seats being recalled, the buckles may not unlatch, making it difficult to remove the child from the seat. That increases the risk of injury in a crash, fire or other emergency when a speedy exit from the vehicle is required.

In an emailed statement, Graco said it “identified that food and dried liquids can make some harness buckles progressively more difficult to open over time or become stuck in the latched position.”

Graco will supply the buyers of these products with a replacement buckle free of charge.
