Models Affected: Graco is recalling approximately 47,000 mislabeled convertible car seats. Affected models include Graco ComfortSport, Ready Ride and Classic Ride convertible car seats sold between March 2014 and February 2015 with the following model numbers: 1794333, 1813040, 1812930, 1924519 and 1924520.
Also affected are Extend2Fit Convertible car seats manufactured from Nov. 27, 2015, through Jan. 20, 2016. The affected seats’ model number is 1954477; parents can find the car seat’s model number on a label on the bottom of the car seat.
The Problem: The label on the ComfortSport, Ready Ride and Classic Ride car seats does not include a statement identifying the location of the printed instruction manual. While this is not a safety hazard, the statement is required by law.
“While waiting for the replacement labels, caregivers can continue to use their car seat without hesitation and should store their owner’s manual in the compartment located on the back of their car seat as indicated on the last page of the manual,” Graco said in a statement.
Similarly, Graco discovered that the recline label on some Extend2Fit convertible car seats is in another language, which does not meet federal safety guidelines.
The Fix: Graco will mail new labels to owners of registered car seats. To make sure you’re contacted about recalls, register your car seat.
