BUCKLED UP: Federal safety officials are investigating complaints that children have been trapped in Graco car seats because the buckles won't unlatch.
THE DETAILS: The probe covers My Ride and Nautilus car seats from 2009 through 2011 made by Graco Children's Products Inc. of Atlanta, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Friday.
THE PROBLEM: NHTSA has received 25 reports of problems from consumers, with some complaining that they had to use excessive force to unlatch the buckle. Three told the agency they had to cut the seat's harness to free their child, while six more said they had to pull the child through the harness. No injuries have been reported.
