Graco Car Seats

Recall date: February 11, 2014

Name of product: Toddler Convertible Car Seats: Cozy Cline, Comfort Sport, Classic Ride 50, My Ride 65, My Ride 70, My Ride 65 with Safety Surround, Size4Me 70, My Size 70, Head Wise 70, Smart Seat.
Harnessed Booster Seats: Nautilus 3-in-1, Nautilus Elite and Argos.

The Hazard:  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports the red release button in the center of the harness can become difficult to unlatch, or can become stuck, often due to food and dried liquids. That can make it difficult or impossible to remove the child quickly in an emergency.

Description: The NHTSA announced Tuesday that Graco is voluntarily recalling 11 of 18 model seats that the government agency had asked it to recall, a total of 3.7 million seats. Graco reports no injuries in these car seats, but a letter from the NHTSA reports the company was a defendant in a wrongful death suit over “the death of a 2-year-old child, Leiana Ramirez, who was killed in a car fire following a motor vehicle accident.” The girl “was seated in a Graco Nautilus car seat, of the subject seats.”


What to do: Graco is offering a new and improved replacement harness buckle to affected consumers at no cost. If you are experiencing difficulty with your harness buckle and cleaning has not improved its performance, please contact the Graco customer service team at 800-345-4109 (Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.) or consumerservices@gracobaby.com
