First off, you should know that the seats themselves aren’t being recalled for safety malfunction, the belts are. The problem is that the buckles are getting stuck and, in the case of an emergency, kids are getting stuck.
Also, while you aren’t going to get a new car seat out of them, then are going to set you up with some new buckles that will be easier for you to maneuver.
Now, Graco is blaming food and drinks for the malfunction, which seems logical (have you ever seen a kid in a car with food or drinks?!)… but it seems more probable that the buckle feature is a little too secure. Either way, they have some new ones for you.
Check out their recall post here for info on how to snag yourself a new buckle set.
