Big news from Graco: The company is recalling about 47,000 convertible car seats. But the seats pose no safety hazards and you can continue to use them as you work on rectifying the problem. What’s going on here? The car seats are mislabeled, lacking legally-required information identifying the location of the printed instruction manual. The instruction manual is supposed to be tucked into a compartment within the back of the car seat.

If this doesn’t sound particularly urgent to you, know that it is a voluntary recall. Graco will mail new labels to owners of registered car seats. If your seat isn’t registered, you can contact Graco at 800-345-4109.

Affected models include the Graco ComfortSport, Ready Ride and Classic Ride convertible car seats sold between March 2014 and February 2015. Look for the following model numbers on the bottom of the seat:

- 1794333

- 1813040

- 1812930

- 1924519

- 1924520

Additionally, some labels on the Extend2Fit convertible car seat are not printed in English, which goes against federal safety guidelines.
