The defect involves difficulty in unlatching the harness buckle. In some cases, the buckle becomes stuck in a latched condition so that it cannot be opened by depressing the buckle's release button. It may be difficult to remove the child from the restraint, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a vehicle crash, fire, or other emergency, in which a prompt exit from the vehicle is required.
The recall includes 1,910,102 Graco rear-facing child restraints manufactured between July 2010 and May 2013. The affected models are the SnugRide, SnugRide Classic Connect (including Classic Connect 30 and 35), SnugRide 30, SnugRide 35, SnugRide Click Connect 40, and Aprica A30.
Graco will replace the buckle with a new design. For more information, contact Graco at (877) 766-7470 or online at gracobucklerecall.com, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
