Graco has issued two separate recalls involving four models of their child restraint systems due to the car seats not meeting Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213 regarding the fixed label on the car seat.
The first recall affects 31,838 Graco Classic Ride, ComfortSport, and Ready Ride car seats. These car seats were manufactured approximately between March 1, 2014 to February 28, 2015. These child seats are missing the statement on the affixed warning label that informs consumers of the location of the instruction manual, and a statement that consumers should follow the instructions in the printed manual and on the car seat. The following models are affected: 1794333, 1813040, 1812930, 1924519, and 1924520.
Graco will notify the registered owners and will mail them corrected labels to affix to the child restraints. The recall is expected to begin February 22, 2016. Owners may contact Graco at 1-800-345-4109.
The second recall affects Graco’s Extend2Fit Convertible child restraints. In these affected child seats, the recline label affixed is at the wrong location, resulting in confusion about how to use the seat properly. If the instructions are followed as shown currently, a child could be placed in the wrong position in the child seat, increasing the likelihood of injury in the event of the crash. These child restraints were manufactured from November 27, 2025 to January 20, 20116, and affect approximately 15,000 child seats.

Americans rely on manufacturers to provide a safe well-designed product. Sadly, that is not often the case. The Auto Defect Attorneys at The Brandi Law Firm have successfully represented many people injured from defective autos such as Toyotas, Fords, Chryslers, Hondas, GM, and their component parts. Additionally, we have successfully represented people injured by defective helmets, bicycles, motorcycles, fuel pumps, brakes, car seats, seat belts, air bags, table saws, pumps, industrial machinery used in the workplace, barbeques, heating systems, and numerous other household and industrial products.
Often times, people involved in accidents do not examine the issues of defective product design, the risks inherent in the design, feasible alternatives, and appropriate warnings. In a car accident, we examine whether the car was truly crashworthy – does it contain the appropriate crash protection. In accidents where someone strikes a guardrail, people often do not consider the guardrail may be unsafe, installed improperly, or whether there is a contributing factor in the roadway design leading to a dangerous condition. We have represented a number of people seriously injured in these types of accidents involving dangerous conditions of roads and crashworthy vehicles. If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto crash, our attorneys at The Brandi Law Firm are available to consult with you. Please contact our office at 800-481-1615 or email us.
