Graco Recalls 1.9 Million Car Seats
Popular car seat manufacturer Graco has recently announced a recall affecting 1.9 million car seats with potentially defective harness buckles, according to CBS Detroit.
About the Graco Harness Buckle Recall
On Tuesday, Graco issued a recall for car seats manufactured between July 2010 and May 2013 due to harness buckles that may become difficult to open. No injuries associated with the recall have been reported. Graco has said it will provide owners with a free replacement kit. Additionally, Graco will provide the replacement kit free of charge to anyone who owns a car seat not included in the recall but would like to update to a current buckle design.
The recall comes after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened an investigation into the buckles after customers complained of difficulty getting the buckles to release.
Description of the Recalled Car Seats
Owners of Graco car seats can go to GracoBuckleRecall.com to see if their car seat is covered by the recall. Owners will need to know the model name and date of manufacture which can be found on a white label located on the bottom of the carrier.
