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.
