Graco is recalling nearly 3.8 million car safety seats after discovering that children can get trapped by buckles that may not unlatch.
Federal safety regulators say another 1.8 million rear-facing car seats should be recalled.
“The recall covers 11 models made from 2009 through 2013 by Graco Children’s Products Inc. of Atlanta. It’s the fourth-largest child seat recall in U.S. history, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the government’s road safety watchdog,” says AP. “The agency warned that the problem could make it “difficult to remove the child from the restraint, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a vehicle crash, fire or other emergency.”
