    Recalled: Recaro ProSPORT car seat

    If you have the following car seat, click through to the Safercar.gov press release for more information:

    recalled car seat

    Recaro Child Safety LLC (Recaro) is recalling certain Recaro ProSport model 385 child restraints, manufactured from June 16, 2010, through January 31, 2013. When the affected child seats are installed with the LATCH lower anchors only (without the top tether), the child’s head can move excessively, increasing the risk of injury. As such, these seats fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, “Child Restraint Systems.”

    You can read Recaro’s Notification Letter to consumers here.

    I highly recommend signing up for recall notifications from the NHTSA here.

    Graco Rear-Facing Car Seats Recalled

    If you have the following car seat, click through to the Safercar.gov press release for more information:

    Graco Children’s Products (Graco) is recalling certain rear-facing child restraints manufactured between July 2010 and May 2013, models SnugRide, SnugRide Classic Connect (including Classic Connect 30 and 35), SnugRide 30, SnugRide 35, SnugRide Click Connect 40, and Aprica A30. The defect involves difficulty in unlatching the harness buckle. In some cases, the buckle becomes stuck in a latched condition so that it cannot be opened by depressing the buckle’s release button.

    Graco will replace the buckle with a new, free buckle. If you’ve registered your car seat, they will contact you eventually, but you can also reach Graco at 1-877-766-7470 or online at www.gracobucklerecall.com, or at consumerservices@gracobaby.com

    I highly recommend signing up for recall notifications from the NHTSA here.
