Child seat manufacturer Graco added a little over 400,000 seats to their recall announced in early February. The total number of child seats affected by this recall is approximately 4.2 million.
The problem seems to be with the belt buckle that may become difficult to undo should food or liquid seep in. In the event that a parent would have to leave the vehicle due to an emergency, the defect may put the child in danger.
Graco has indicated that owners of affected child seats will receive a package in the mail to repare the buckle. Meanwhile, the company announced that it’s safe to continue using the seats.
