All Products Associated with this Recall

Child Restraints Brand Name Model Production Dates
GRACO CLASSIC RIDE 04/01/2014 - 11/30/2014

SUMMARY:
Graco Children’s Products Inc. (Graco) is recalling certain ComfortSport child restraints, model numbers 1813040 and 1794333; Ready Ride child restraints, model numbers 1924520 and 1924519; and Classic Ride child restraints, model number 1812930. These seats were manufactured between March 1, 2014, and February 28, 2015. The affected convertible child restraints are missing a statement on the affixed label that informs of location of the instruction manual. Without the notice on the fixed label, these seats fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213 “Child Restraint Systems.”

CONSEQUENCE:
If the label does not inform the seat owner of the instruction manual’s location, the owner may not be able to refer to it and may use the seat improperly, increasing the risk of injury to the child in the event of a crash.

REMEDY:
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.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
