This is the same buckle issue – difficulty opening the buckle or the possibility that it will become stuck in the latched position.

The recall comes just days after NHTSA ordered Graco to explain why last month’s recall didn’t include infant seats (these have the same type of buckles). Those seats have been listed as Snugride, Snugride 30, Snugride 32, Infant Safe Seat-Step 1, Snugride 35, Snug Ride Click Connect 40, Snug Ride 22, which were manufactured between 2009-2012. Graco has until March 20 to address those concerns.
The recall is now over 4.1 million, the 4th-largest child seat recall in American history.
