PSA--Graco My Ride Recall

I think I have one. I need to check the model number.

I am not reassured that the replacements don't start until July, the current model might not restrain the child, but we can continue to use them. Something there doesn't add up to me!

Re: PSA--Graco My Ride Recall

I freaked out about this too until I realized it's a proportionally small lot of seats that were affected. Manufactured in summer 2014 on very specific days with specific tag numbers on the straps. Luckily my seat was made in 2016 so non-issue. Also no injuries were reported which is reassuring. I think that small lot failed a certain quality measure during production. Not sure why it took them 3 yrs to figure it out. It makes me think back to when I was registering at bye-bye baby and the employee told me to avoid Grayco because their safety measures are at the bare minimum. Finances won out when I pick the cheapest seat well I guess you get what you pay for

Re: PSA--Graco My Ride Recall

I disagree.

Personally I love graco seats--we have 6 of them. But more than that one of the cheapest seats on the market--the cosco one, has very high safety ratings. You don't need to spend big bucks on a carseat to keep your child safe. The pricier seats are sometimes easier/nicer to use, but I don't think they are safer than other seats.

I had one of these until recently. Very disconcerting when car seats get recalled.
