Recall Round-Up: Graco Car Seats, Children’s Pajamas, Baby Food Maker
SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WGGB) — On this abc40 Recall Round-up, we look at three items that could pose a safety threat to your child. GRACO INFANT CAR SEATS We told you about this first recall last week. Graco Children’s Products is recalling nearly 2 million infant car seats, agreeing to government demands in what is now the largest seat recall in American history. Buckles can get gummed up by food and drinks, making it difficult to remove children. In some cases parents had to cut harnesses to get their kids out. The agency says that increases the risk of injuries in emergencies. Graco is offering a new and improved replacement harness buckle at no cost, to any consumer who may be experiencing difficulty with their harness buckle. You’re encouraged to place your order for a replacement harness buckle using our online order form. Graco is stressing that their car seats are safe and effective in restraining children. You can continue to use your car seat while waiting for your new buckle. www.secure.gracobucklerecall.com/recall2014 Model Name and Dates Produced: Argos 70, Argos 70 Elite, 5/1/2011 through 7/31/2013;Classic Ride 50, 10/1/2011 through 9/30/2013; Comfort Sport Ready Ride, 10/1/2010 through 9/30/2013; Cozy Cline Toddler SafeSeat , 1/1/2006 through 4/30/2010; My Ride 65, My Ride 65 with Safety Surround, 4/1/2009 through 7/31/2013; and 9/30/2013; My Ride 70, 5/1/2012 through 7/31/2013; My Size 70, Size 4 Me 70, Head Wise 70 with Safety Surround, 1/1/2012 through 7/31/2013; and 8/3/2013; Nautilus 3-in-1, Nautilus Plus, Nautilus Elite, 10/1/2007 through 7/31/2013; and 8/19/2013; Smart Seat, Smart Seat with Safety Surround, 12/1/2010 through 9/30/2013; and 10/9/2013, 12/25/2013, 1/10/2014 EMPRESS ARTS COTTON CHILDREN’S TWO-PIECE PAJAMA SETS Empress Arts is recalling 100 percent cotton children’s two-piece pajamas sets.
