Models Affected: Approximately 20,500 Graco TurboBooster seats manufactured between Dec. 22, 2015, and April 5, 2016. Only the following model numbers are affected: 1967886, 1963973, 1963974, 1963975, 1963976 and 1975173. Both high-back and backless models are included in the recall. You can find your booster’s model number and manufacture date on a white label located on the bottom of the car seat.

The Problem: The owner’s manual is missing instructions that directs caregivers to securely belt the booster at all times, including when the seat is empty. The seat could become a projectile in the event of an accident, injuring vehicle occupants.

The Fix: Graco will notify registered owners and provide the missing printed instructions for free.

“While waiting for the updated owner’s manual, caregivers can continue to use their TurboBooster car seats without hesitation and should secure the booster seat to the vehicle seat when it’s not in use,” Graco said in a statement.

What Owners Should Do: Owner notification will begin June 10. Owners can call Graco at 800-345-4109 or go to the website for more info.
