CRYSTAL LAKE – Crystal Lake police are warning residents about a child safety seat recall.

Graco Children's Products Inc. is recalling model year 2009 through 2013 toddler and booster child restraints, the police department said in a Nixle alert.

Models Cozy Cline, Comfort Sport, Classic Ride 50, My Ride with Safety Surround, My Ride 70, Size 4 Me 70, Smartseat, Nautilus, Nautilus Elite, and Argos 70 are all being recalled.

The defect involves difficulty in unlatching the harness bubble, causing it to become stuck in a latched condition so it can't be opened by pressing the release button.

It may be difficult to remove the child from the seat, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash or fire, the police department warned.

Owners may contact Graco at 1-800-345-4109 (toll-free) or 1-330-869-7225, or online at

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to
