UPDATE: Graco Adding Over 400K Child Safety Seats To 3.8M Seat Recall

Posted: Updated:

Parents and caregivers of children and car seats, listen up.

Graco has added another 403,000 child seat recalls to nearly 3.8 million safety seats for faulty buckles.

Children may become trapped by buckles that may not unlatch.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is not satisfied yet. They want Graco to add another 1.8 million infant seats to the recall because the seats have the same buckle. 

Right now, the affected models include Toddler Convertible Car Seats: Cozy Cline, Comfort Sport, Classic Ride 50, My Ride 65, My Ride 70, My Ride 65 with Safety Surround, Size4Me 70, My Size 70, Head Wise 70 with Safety Surround, Ready Ride, Smart Seat, and Smart Seat with Safety Surround. Also, Harnessed Booster Seats: Nautilus 3-in-1, Nautilus Elite, Nautilus Plus, Argos 70, and Argos 70 Elite.

They were all made from 2009 to 2013.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has received 80 complaints, in some cases, parents had to cut their children free.

Graco is offering new and improved replacement buckles at no cost.
