Parents who own these car seats can receive a free replacement buckle by calling 1- 877-766-7470 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday or by visiting the Graco recall website and entering the model name and date of manufacture. Parents can still use their current car seat while waiting for the new buckle to arrive.

Earlier this year, Graco announced a recall of more than three million car seats after the company learned that buckles can become stuck, making it difficult to remove the child in case of an emergency. The company became aware of the issue after 80 complaints were filed to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Those car seats were sold between 2009 and 2013.

The buckle is defective and has NOTHING to do with children's food getting stuck in the car seat. Ours had issues from day one and my daughter has NEVER eaten anything in that car seat.

The buckle is defective and has NOTHING to do with children's food getting stuck in the car seat. Ours had issues from day one and my daughter has NEVER eaten anything in that car seat.

Every time my caregiver buckles my daughter in she gets stuck, takes 10-15 minutes to get her unbuckled. Ordered my new replacement buckle 2 weeks ago and still hasn't arrived in the mail. Called Graco customer service and the representative let me know it takes 6-8 weeks to arrive. What?!?! 6-8 weeks! Ridiculous!

The company is dangerously mishandling this recall in a slow unresponsive manner.

MotherOfTwo1383344466- I'd make sure YOU know what you are talking about before criticizing Candace.. If you would have read the original recall(buckle replacement) statement from Graco then you would know that that is one of the reasons Graco gives for the buckles sticking.. Even though that's just them trying to save face and give a reason other than admitting guilt for the reason they are hard to unbuckle! I had the infant snug rides for my twins(both hard to do) and the my ride 65's and they too were a pain in the rear!!

I have two of these car seats , and I have had to do the same as above, try to pull my Grandson out with out them undone , I also made the comment to my Husband I will carry scissors in the glove box . Then at times it has been so bad I have taken my keys or a small screw drive to push the button in ,and it nothing to do with food . In our other car same problem we also have one we have the nautilus so I hope we can get it fixed soon

I have also heard that some target stores are taking them back & replacing them. I'm gonna check further into that. That would be great.. I was starting to research the booster seats.

Actually the article above ^^^ does say "parents who own these car seats are being told to stop using them immediately" ... So they want us to go get a new one or what? It's not food in the buckles.. Ours has always been hard to unbuckle also.

Ya. Food getting in the buckle is NOT the problem. From day one, the 2 I own have been difficult to unbuckle. (Nautilus Elites)

I simply emailed them. They sent a link and I ordered the buckle as we have the click connect snug n ride infant car seat
