Graco adds 400,000 child seats to recall

Detroit (AP) - Graco Children's Products has added 403,222 child seats to last month's recall of 3.8 million to replace faulty harness buckles.

But the added seats won't end a dispute with the U.S. government's road safety watchdog. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration still wanted Graco to add 1.8 million infant seats to the recall because they have the same buckles.

Buckles can get gummed up by food and drinks, making it difficult to remove children. In some cases parents have had to cut harnesses to get their children out. The agency said the problem increases the injury risk in emergencies.

Graco said in a letter to the agency that it found additional toddler and harnessed booster seats that should be recalled. The company said it still believes the infant seats should be excluded.
