Graco Children’s Products recalls 1.9 million infant car seats

Graco Children’s Products announced Wednesday that they are recalling 1.9 million infant car seats.

The company has agreed to demands from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to recall the product after a five-month spat, according to NBC News.
 
The agency requested the recall after complaints that the harness buckle sometimes made it difficult to remove children. Earlier this year, the company recalled 4.2 million toddler seats due to issues with the buckle.
 
Graco argued that infant seats are used differently than the toddler seats, and in an emergency, an adult can remove the whole seat rather than using the buckle.
 
This is now the largest seat recall in American history.
 
You can determine whether or not the buckle on your Graco infant car seat is recalled by entering the model name and date of manufacture on GracoBuckleRecall.com.
