Graco Children’s Products previously recalled 4,176,601 toddler and booster child seats due to a buckle defect earlier this year, but did not recall the infant child seats. Now, Graco has now recalled 1,910,102 infant car seats because of a defect in unlatching the harness buckle – the same issue that plagued the earlier car seats recalled. The buckle becomes stuck in a latched condition so that it cannot be opened by depressing the buckle’s release button.
Graco Children’s Products (Graco) is recalling certain rear-facing child restraints manufactured between July 2010 and May 2013, models SnugRide, SnugRide Classic Connect (including Classic Connect 30 and 35), SnugRide 30, SnugRide 35, SnugRide Click Connect 40, and Aprica A30.
Graco will replace the buckle with a new design, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Graco at 877-766-7470 or online at [email protected], or at [email protected]. Note: In addition, Graco will conduct a consumer satisfaction campaign to cover infant child restraints manufactured with AmSafe QT3 and Signature buckles. Under this consumer satisfaction campaign, the company will provide a replacement buckle at no cost to any consumer upon their request for the useful life of the child restraint. To see if your model may be covered, or for additional information, call Graco at 877-766-7470, visit www.gracobucklerecall.com, or email [email protected].
