Graco Car Seat Recall
Graco Children's Products, more commonly known simply as Graco, is recalling some rear-facing child restraint seats made between July 2010 and May 2013. The recalled models include the SnugRide, SnugRide Classic Connect (including Classic Connect 30 and 35), SnugRide 30, SnugRide 35, SnugRide Click Connect 40, and Aprica A30. The defect involves difficulty in unlatching the harness buckle. In some cases, the buckle becomes stuck in a latched condition so that it cannot be opened by depressing the buckle's release button.
What Can Happen:
In the event of an accident and a quick exit is necessary from the motor vehicle, it may be difficult to remove the child from the restraint, increasing the risk of injury to the child stuck in the motor vehicle.
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 1-877-766-7470 or online at email@example.com, or at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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, Graco 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 directly at 1-877-766-7470, visit www.gracobucklerecall.com, or email email@example.com.
