Safety Notice – Graco ComfortSport car seats-December 9, 2008

Because the Graco blog is an additional way of sharing information with our consumers, we wanted to make sure all of our readers are aware of a safety notice we are announcing today, December 9, 2008 on 43,994 units of Graco® ComfortSport™ convertible car seat in the Frazier™ fashion. (Model # 8C04FRR and 8C04FRR2)  The affected units were manufactured between November 1, 2006 and October 8, 2007. (the dates will appear like this on the car seat label – 110106 through 100807)

The affected seats were equipped with a large sized, supplemental pad or “body pillow” that partially obscures an important child airbag warning label that is permanently affixed to the inside of the seat pad. The partial obscuring of this label fails to conform with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, “Child Restraint Systems.” Models produced after October 8, 2007 date are equipped with body pillows that have a duplicative warning label permanently affixed to the body pillow itself and therefore, are not affected by this notice.

Graco is asking owners of this car seat to simply remove and discard the supplemental pillow that partially covers the airbag warning label. (Please note that the pillows are provided for additional comfort only and do not affect the seat’s ability to protect your child in the event of a crash.)

This information can also be found on Gracobaby.com and owners may contact Graco at 1-800-345-4109 or by e-mail at ConsumerServices@gracobaby.com if you have additional questions. Information about this safety notice can also be found on NHTSA’s website here.

As always, we encourage you to pass this information along to anyone you know that may have an affected car seat. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

    I was told Toyota is definitely recalling 2.4 million vehicles with acceleration issues . My brother owns one, should the vehicle be driven before it’s fixed?

    The Regal’s Harmon Kardon sound system is impressive, can feel the base hit through my seat

    Thanks for the timely warning on the recall.

    Fortunately, Graco made it through and continued to produce some fantastic seats like the Graco Nautilus 3 in 1 car seat.

    Keep it up.
