It's hard to believe that one of the most popular infant car seats that was rated Consumer Report's Best Buy, has announced a voluntary recall of its Graco 2007 Stand Alone Infant Snug Ride ($69–$89). According to their site:
"Graco has determined that the backing of the seat pad on certain stand-alone SnugRide infant car seats manufactured in the United States, may be prone to deterioration or tearing, especially after washing. If this occurs, children occupying the car seat may be able to remove the padding material from the back of the seat pad and place it in their mouths, posing a potential choking hazard.
This notice does not affect SnugRide car seats sold with a stroller as part of a Travel System.
This issue does not affect the ability of the child restraint system to protect the occupant in the event of a motor vehicle crash."
Check your seat and see if you need to order the replacement parts. This is for seats sold between Aug. 1, 2006 through Jun. 30, 2007. Luckily, no injuries have been reported. Thanks for the heads up, Graco!
