Officials ordered Graco to explain why the recall didn’t include an additional seven rear-facing child seats in the recent recall of 3.8 million Graco child seats.
The recent Graco recall included child seats sold from 2009 through 2013 by Graco Children’s Products Inc. of Atlanta. The problem with the seats is said to make it difficult to remove children from the child safety seats, which could increase the risk of injury in the event of a car accident.
Graco however is confident that its car seats are safe and comply with NHTSA’s standards. They claim they’ve rigorously tested the seats to be sure they far exceed federal requirements.
