Graco is recalling 47,000 convertible car seats for a labeling error. The labels on the Graco ComfortSport, Ready Ride and Classic Ride car seats don't include a statement that tells owners where to find the printed instruction manual—which is required by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This recall affects less than one percent of Graco car seats produced.
The Extend2Fit convertible car seats also have a labeling issue, but with the recline labels, which are in another language (i.e,. not English) "on less than one percent of those produced"—which also doesn't comply with federal regulations. According to Graco, "The affected Extend2Fit convertible car seats are part of the Campaign fashion sold at Target in the United States."
While the recall is not due to any reason that should impact the physical safety of the car seats, Graco needs to replace the labels on all of the following affected car seats:
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.
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.
According to a statement from Graco, "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 will be mailing revised labels to owners of register car seats.
