Potential Problem:

Graco® has determined that eighteen child restraint systems were sold with foam sewn in the seat pad which does not meet Graco's specification for U.S. car seats. This foam is 1.5 inches thick versus the specified 1 inch thick foam. Child restraints with 1.5 inch foam have not been tested and are not certified so, it is unclear as to what impact this foam will have on compliance to the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, Child Restraint Systems, and on child seat safety.
