U.S. Pushes for Wider Recall of Graco Car Seats

graco-car-seatU.S. Pushes for Wider Recall of Graco Car Seats

Graco Children’s Products, which resisted recalling about 1.8 million child restraints earlier this year, has responded to a special order from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration demanding more information about incidents or injuries involving the rear-facing infant restraints.

N.H.T.S.A. began investigating the defect in late 2012, based on complaints from owners. In February, Graco agreed to recall about 3.8 million forward-facing restraints designed for older children, including the model in which the California girl died. Then in March, the company added another 403,000 restraints to the recall.

The 1.8 million restraints Graco is refusing to recall are rear-facing models used for infants. Graco says those seats use the same defective buckles as the regular, forward-facing seats used by older children. But it says a recall is not necessary because the portion of the seat holding the child can be detached from the base, which is anchored to the vehicle’s seat.

If Graco continues to refuse to recall the seats – and N.H.T.S.A. wishes to pursue the matter – it could take Graco to court. Read more: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/22/automobiles/us-pushes-for-wider-recall-of-graco-car-seats.html?_r=0
