1.9 million car seats recalled by Graco

(KYTX) - Graco recalls 1.9 million car seats because consumers had trouble opening the buckles.

Graco issued the following recall:

As part of our continuous product testing and improvement process, Graco identified that some of the harness buckles used on our infant and toddler car seats sold in the United States are difficult to open. In response, we are recalling the harness buckles used on select infant, toddler convertible car seats and harnessed booster seats.

There have been no reported injuries related to this issue or the safe use of the car seats. Graco will continue to offer a free replacement buckle to any consumer who has a toddler car seat or infant car seat not included in this recall, but would like to update their buckle to Graco’s current buckle design.

Consumers can determine if their infant and toddler car seats are affected and order a replacement harness buckle using our online order form. While waiting for a replacement kit, it is safe to use the infant and toddler car seat. If the buckle becomes sticky or difficult to open, Graco recommends cleaning it by following the cleaning instructions as this will definitely make the buckle easier to use. Our car seats have been carefully engineered and rigorously crash tested to meet or exceed every safety standard set forth by the federal government.

For additional questions, contact our customer service team.

The company says consumers can verify if their infant car seat is affected by this recall and order a replacement kit by entering the model name and date of manufacture on GracoBuckleRecall.com or calling (877) 766-7470.
