Graco is recalling harness buckles used on approximately 1.9 million infant car seats manufactured between July 2010 and May 2013. Some consumers reported having difficulty opening the buckle or not being able to open it at all. Graco will provide a free replacement buckle.
No injuries associated with this issue have been reported, but Graco encourages consumers to order a buckle replacement kit and install the new buckle as soon as it arrives. An affected car seat can be used until the replacement buckle arrives, but consumers who have other car seats available may want to swap them out for the time being.
Consumers can check whether their infant car seat is affected by this recall and order a replacement kit by entering the model name and date of manufacture at GracoBuckleRecall.com, by calling (877) 766-7470, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The necessary information can be found on the white label on the bottom of the infant car seat carrier. Graco will also provide a free replacement buckle to any consumer who has an infant car seat not included in this recall but would like to update their buckle to Graco’s current design.
