3.7 Million Graco Car Seats Recalled
About the Graco Car Seat Recall
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the red release button in the center of the harness is difficult to unlatch and can become stuck in the latched position.
The recall applies to all toddler convertible car seats and all harnessed booster seats manufactured from 2009 to July 2013. Graco is voluntarily recalling eleven out of eighteen model seats that the NHTSA has asked it to recall.
Despite the NHTSA’s request to recall the remaining seven models, Graco has not issued a voluntary recall for these products. Instead, Graco is providing improved buckles to customers at no cost, although the company emphasizes that parents can continue to use current car seats until they receive the new product.
The NHTSA, on the other hand, suggests that concerned parents use a different car seat until their Graco car seat is fixed.
