Graco recalling nearly 3.8M child car seats

DETROIT — Graco is recalling nearly 3.8 million car safety seats because children can be trapped by buckles that may not unlatch.

The recall covers 11 models sold from 2009 through 2013.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it has received at least 80 complaints about the seats. Parents reported having to use excessive force to unlatch the harness buckle. In some cases, the straps had to be cut to free children.

Affected models include Cozy Cline, Comfort Sport, Classic Ride 50, My Ride 65, My Ride with Safety Surround, My Ride 70, Size 4 Me 70, Smartseat, Nautilus, Nautilus Elite and Argos 70.
