Graco Children’s Products has added an additional 403,000 child seats to its recall of over 3.8 million, making it the fourth-largest car seat recall in U.S. history. The recall expands to child seats sold from 2006 through 2014 because the buckle harnesses can become stuck. Food and drink can cause the buckles to become sticky and may prohibit adults from being able to remove a child from the seat in the event of an emergency. Some adults have resorted to cutting the harnesses in order to get their child out of the car seat.
The models added to the recall are:
- Argos 40 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
- Smart Seat with Safety Surround
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is still pushing Graco to recall over 1.8 million infant seats for the same issue.
