NHTSA Reminds Parents of Safety Recall Involving Graco’s SnugRide Infant Seats
(SafetyAlerts) - The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) today reminded consumers that Graco Children’s Products is conducting a safety recall involving 650,000 of its SnugRide infant car seats.

This safety recall, which Graco announced in March, involves certain infant seats with Model Numbers 8402, 8412, 8442, 8442L, 8443, 8443L, 8444, 8444L, 8446, 8446L, 8447, 8447L, 8448, 8448L, 8457, 8458, 8459, 8601, 8463, 8464, 8470, 8471, 8478 and C844342 that were manufactured between March 1, 2002, and March 6, 2003.

Some of these seats may have missing hardware that is used to attach the carrier to the base. If the hardware is missing, the carrier may not be securely attached to the base. In the event of a sudden stop or vehicle crash, the carrier may detach from the base, possibly resulting in serious injury or death.

NHTSA Administrator Jeffrey W. Runge, M.D., strongly urged parents to inspect their SnugRide infant car seats. Parents who find that a SnugRide infant seat does not have hooks or pins should not use the base and should call Graco at 1-866-473-0163 for a new base. Inspection instructions are at the Graco web site on the World Wide Web.

The infant carrier may, however, be used in the car without the base. For proper instructions on installing the carrier in the car without the base, parents should consult an instruction manual. Installation instructions are available online at www.gracobaby.com.

For more information, owners should write to Graco Children’s Products, Inc., 150 Oaklands Boulevard, Exton, PA 19341.
