Graco Expands Their Recall To Include 403,000 More Car Seats
Check your car seats! Graco’s previous recall included 3.7 million car seats, however they have just expanded that recall to 403,222 more car seats including 2006 through 2014 Argos 70 Elite, Ready Ride, Step 2, My Ride 65 with Safety Surround, My Size 70, Head Wise 70 with Safety Surround, Nautilus 3-in-1, Nautilus Plus, and Smart Seat with Safety Surround.
This extension is due to the same reason. Buckles can get jammed up with drinks and good which make the harnesses difficult to release and remove children. The National Highway Traffic Safety Commission has said that this problem increases the risk of injuries in emergencies and want an additional 1.8 million infant seats added to the recall because tehy have the same buckles. They have also asked Graco to come up with an explanation as to why the other seats weren’t included in the original recall.
This recall is now at 4.2 million, making it the fourth-largest child seat recall in American history and if they add the additional infant seats, it would be the largest such recall.
