Graco has announced the recall of about 3.8 million car seats sold between 2009 and 2013 in the U.S. (see note below regarding Canada). The buckles may get stuck, trapping infants in the seat.

Graco is saying food or drink spills in and around the buckles is causing them to stick.

Car seats involved in the recall are as follows:

Toddler convertible car seats

My Ride 70

Graco is also being pressed to recall another 1.8 million of the following rear-facing infant carseats (though these products are not being recalled, Graco will honour buckle-replacement requests):
