Graco Children’s products Inc. issued a voluntary Safety Advisory on May 14, 2015 in Canada in conjunction with Transport Canada concerning certain Graco Snugride 22 Classic Connect Infant car seats. Certain combinations of the base and infant car seat do not meet the injury criterion limits as established by the Canadian Motor vehicle safety standard (CMVSS) 213.1. If a collision occurs, there is a potential risk of injury to a child occupant as this specific car seat and base combination does not appear to adequately protect the occupant. In Canada, 1711 of these Graco car seats were sold between February 2013 and April 2015.
The follow models are affected:
Seats manufactured outside of these dates are compliant and are excluded from this action.
If you are a registered owner, you will get a letter with instructions and information on how to obtain a repair kit for their affected products. The repair kit as well as instructions will be sent to affected consumers who register online at www.gracobaby.ca. If you didn't register your car seat, contact Elfe Juvenile Products, at 1-800-667-8184 or email@example.com to obtain a free repair kit or, if they have any questions.
While consumers are awaiting their repair kit, it is recommended that the users install the car seat WITHOUT using the base to reduce the risk of injury, in the event of a vehicle collision.
Consumer should write on their base "DO NOT USE" or blur out the manufacturing date with a permanent black marker and dispose of it in the garbage.
