Graco Car Seat Recall – Attention parents who have Graco car seats! Listen up to their latest recall for 2014 :
As of February 12th, 2014, Graco is recalling about 3.8 million car safety seats because children can be trapped, but is refusing to recall seven other infant seat models, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recall notice.
The seats being recalled- the buckles may not unlatch, making it hard to remove the child from the seat, thus increases the risk of injury in a crash, fire or other emergency when a speedy exit from the vehicle is required.
This is a voluntary recall on the harness buckles used on all toddler convertible car seats and harnessed booster seats manufactured from 2009 to July 2013. The company would like to strongly stress that this does not in any way affect the performance of the car seat or the effectiveness of the buckle to restrain the child. And a car seat is always the safest way to transport your child.
