Graco Children’s Products is recalling several of its car seats due to a faulty buckle. The buckle can get stuck in the latched position, making it difficult to remove your child from the seat and increasing the risk of injury in an emergency.
Visit the Graco website to look up affected models. If your car seat is included in the recall, you can order a free replacement harness buckle.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) encourages parents and caregivers to consider using an alternative car seat until the buckle is fixed.
If you need more information about the Graco recall, or recalls for any other car seat, you can look up car seat recalls over the past 10 years, or call the NHTSA hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
Be sure to register your car seat so that you are notified in the event of a recall.
