Graco Children’s Products previously recalled 3,773,379 toddler and booster child seats due to a buckle defect last month. Now, Graco will recall an additional 403,222 seats because of a defect in unlatching the harness buckle. The buckle becomes stuck in a latched condition so that it cannot be opened by depressing the buckle’s release button.
Previously, eleven car seat models from 2009 to 2013 were recalled. Now, Graco will recall another nine models that were manufactured from 2006-2014. The models that were recently added include the Argos 70 Elite, the Ready Ride, the Step 2, the My Ride 65 with Safety Surround, the My Size 70, the Head Wise 70 with Safety Surround, the Nautilus 3-in-1, the Nautilus Plus, and the Smart Seat with Safety Surround.
