The Basics: Graco will recall 31,838 examples of its ComfortSport, Ready Ride, and Classic Ride car seats, which the company sold between March 2014 and February 2015.
The Problem: The car seats do not have a statement on the label to identify the location of the printed instruction manual. Under federal law, the company should have included the information on the product labels.
The Fix: Graco will send owners the label.
If You Own One: Owners can register with Graco to order the new label.
The Basics: Graco will recall 15,064 examples of its Extend2Fit (pictured above) convertible car seat with production dates between November 27, 2015 and January 20, 2016.
The Problem: The labels on the side of the car seat, which show the recline positions, might not be in English and Spanish, and the affected products might not show the full instructions in both languages. This is against federal rules.
The Fix: Graco will provide affected owners with replacement labels.
If You Own One: Owners can contact Graco to get the new label.
Potential Problem: Over the past 60 years, safety has been and will continue to be the priority at Graco. As part of our internal review process, Graco has discovered that, due to an inadvertent error, a small amount of Graco ComfortSport, Ready Ride and Classic Ride car seats did not include a statement on the labels identifying the location of the printed instruction manual and to follow the instructions in the printed manual and on the car seat. Approximately less than one percent of total Graco car seats, which were primarily sold through specialty and online retailers in the United States, are missing this information which should have been included on the product labels. While this information does not affect the dynamic performance of the affected car seats if used in a safe manner in accordance with the owner's manual, it is required by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) standard.

2016 Extend2Fit Convertible Car Seat
Potential Problem: Over the past 60 years, safety has been and will continue to be our priority at Graco. As part of our continuous effort to provide quality and safe products, Graco has discovered that the recline label on a small portion of the Extend2Fit convertible car seats manufactured between November 27, 2015 to January 20, 2016 does not meet regulatory guidelines. While the affected products represent less than one percent of those produced, Graco is recalling the recline label on the affected car seats and providing owners with a free replacement label that can be applied directly to the car seat. The affected Extend2Fit convertible car seats are part of the Campaign fashion sold in the United States.
Injuries Reported: 0
Number of Units Affected: 15,064
Dates Produced: Manufactured between November 27, 2015 - January 20, 2016
Models Affected: 1954477
Solution: To verify if a car seat is included in this recall, caregivers should check their model number and date of manufacture. In addition, caregivers should confirm whether their recline label is correct by examining all labels on the side of the car seat (including the recline label which identifies positions 1 through 6) to determine they are in the same language (i.e. all English (including the recline label) on one side of the car seat and all Spanish on the other side of the car seat). If the languages are the same, caregivers can continue to use their car seat without hesitation as instructed in the owner's manual; the car seat does not need a new label as provided by the recall. If the recline label is incorrect because the languages on the side of the car seat do not match, then caregivers can contact the Graco consumer services team at 1-800-345-4109 (Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm ET) to order a free replacement recline label.
