Graco Safety Advisory to replace buckle

Graco has put out a Safety Advisory to replace the buckle on some models of their convertible car seats.

On March 3rd, 2014, Graco Children’s products Inc, issued a voluntary Safety Advisory in Canada in conjunction with Transport Canada concerning certain Graco convertible child car seats. Further information pertaining to the Advisory that is being issued in Canada can be found on Transport Canada’s website at www.tc.gc.ca/eng/motorvehiclesafety/safedrivers-childsafety-notices-menu...

In Canada, this Safety advisory affects certain Graco Nautilus and MyRide 65. The affected models are:
Nautilus Model No.:
1749108 1749109 1749110 1749111 8J00GLX 8J00MTX 8J00BRV

DEFECT: On certain convertible child car seats, the buckle may become contaminated with foreign material, such as food or dried liquids, and may over time become progressively more difficult to unlatch or become stuck in the latched position. If this occurs, users may experience difficulty unlatching or be unable to unlatch the buckle, which could increase the risk of injury in an emergency situation.
In Canada, approximately 134,349 of these Graco car seats were sold from January 2009 through March 2014.
These car seats were manufactured between January 2009 and July 2013. Seats manufactured after this date use a different harness buckle. The recall does not affect Graco infant car seats and travel systems.
REMEDY: Graco offers a new and improved replacement harness buckle to affected consumers at no cost. Registered owners will be sent a letter containing proper care instructions and information on how to obtain a replacement buckle.
