Graco Child Seats Recalled to Fix Labeling Issue

Graco Child Seats Recalled to Fix Labeling Issue

Various Graco child seats are being recalled to address labeling issues.

The company has announced two separate recalls for its car seats, the first of which affects the ComfortSport, Ready Ride and Classic Ride models.

According to Graco, a total of 31,838 units are affected by the first recall, which involves seats that did not include a statement on the labels identifying the location of the printed instruction manual and to follow the instructions in the printed manual on the car seat. Approximately less than one percent of total Graco car seats are missing this information. The labeling issue doesn’t affect the performance of the affected car seats, but is required by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) standard.

The affected seats were sold between March 2014 to February 2015 and Graco will provide owners with free replacement labels that can be applied directly to the car seat.

The second recall affects the Extend2Fit Convertible car seat and affects 15,064 units. In this instance, Graco discovered that the recline label does not meet regulatory guidelines. On the affected seats, the languages on the recline label on the side of the car seat may not match, so owners can confirm by checking all labels on the side of the car seat to see if the languages are the same.

The affected Extend2Fit seats were manufactured between November 27, 2015 and January 20, 2016. Again, Graco will send a replacement label if necessary to the affected owners.
