Graco Children’s Products Inc. (Graco) is recalling certain TurboBooster booster seats manufactured between December 22, 2015 and April 5, 2016 with the following numbers: 1963973, 1963974, 1963975, 1963976, 1967886, and 1975173.
Graco discovered an omission in the owner’s instruction manual included with select Graco Highback and Backless TurboBooster car seats manufactured between December 22, 2015 through April 5, 2016. The owner’s instruction manual omitted the consumer directive to secure the booster seat (when not in use) to the vehicle seat using the vehicle seat belt to prevent the car seat from striking other occupants in the event of a crash. Although the information does not affect the overall dynamic performance of the TurboBooster car seat if used according to the instructions, this information is required by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) FMVSS-213 standard. To comply with this requirement, Graco is recalling the manuals included with the affected TurboBooster car seats.
