Car Seat Recall

Having a safe car seat for your infant is important. Recently Graco reported that some of the buckles on their infant and toddler car seats are difficult to open. They are replacing the buckle. It is the largest car seat recall in history.  If you own a Graco car seat and would like to know if it is affected by the recall you can go to this link:  https://secure.gracobucklerecall.com/Recall2014 .   Additionally, you can check on all child seat recalls or register a complaint about a particular car seat on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration web site by going to this link:  http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls/childseat.cfm. If you would like more information on the importance of using a correctly installed car seat, go to the keeping your baby safe and healthy page for detailed information on car seat safety.
