Graco recalling almost 3.8 million child car seats because of buckles

In response to a NHTSA recall request letter, Graco Children’s Products Inc. is conducting a recall of the seat harness buckles used in several car seat models made from 2009-2013. NHTSA tells parents and caregivers to assess the operation of their seat buckle and contact Graco to find out how to obtain a free remedy. NHTSA also encourages parents and caregivers to consider using an alternative car seat until their Graco seat is fixed, but to always continue restraining children in a car seat or booster until they are big enough to use a seat belt properly. You can also contact the NHTSA Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 if you need information on the Graco recalls or on any other car seats. Related documents
