Atlanta-based Newell Rubbermaid Inc.’s Graco announced July 1 it is recalling harness buckles used on approximately 1.9 million infant car seats manufactured between July 2010 and May 2013.
Some consumers reported having difficulty or having been unable to open the buckle, which was the reason for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) investigation and the outcome announced today. As a solution, Graco will provide a free replacement buckle, the company reported.
“As the industry leader in baby and parenting essentials, the decisions we make about product safety are far-reaching. We take this responsibility seriously,” said Laurel Hurd, president of Graco Children’s Products, in a statement.
