Graco car seat recall expands: The Real Deal

It's the largest car seat recall in American history and recently it was expanded to include 1.9 million infant car seats made by Graco. Here's The Real Deal on what to do if your child's car seat is on the recall list.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -  It's the largest car seat recall in American history and recently it was expanded to include 1.9 million infant car seats made by Graco.  Here's The Real Deal on what to do if your child's car seat is on the recall list.

The recall stems from concerns that the buckles on the the seats can become stuck and make it dangerous if a baby needs to be taken out of the seat in an emergency situation.

The affected Graco infant car seats include those models manufactured between July of 2010 and May of 2013. You can find this information located on a white label on the bottom of the seat. For a full list of affected car seats, click here.

So far, there are no reported injuries from this issue, but Graco is offering a free replacement buckle.  

If your seat is included in the recall, you can order a replacement kit by calling 1-877-766-7470 or by going to the company's website by clicking here.

Once you do that, Graco tells NewsChannel 9 you can expect your new buckle to arrive in about two weeks. Until then, they say the seat you have is safe to use.  

Graco tells us they will not be issuing any refunds for recalled seats, only that free replacement buckle since they say the seats are safe to use.

Earlier this year, the original recall announced included toddler Graco car seats for the same issue.
