DALLAS, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – Graco Children’s Products is recalling nearly two million infant car seats, agreeing to government demands in what is now the largest seat recall in American history.

The recall came after a five-month spat between Graco and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Earlier this year the company recalled 4.2 million toddler seats for a harness buckle problem, but it resisted the agency’s demand to recall the infant seats.

Buckles can get gummed up by food and drinks, making it difficult to remove children.

In some cases parents had to cut harnesses to get their kids out. The agency says that increases the risk of injuries in emergencies.

As a solution, Graco will provide a free replacement buckle to all owners of the product – and will also provide a free replacement buckle to any consumer who has an infant car seat not included in this recall, but would like to update their buckle to Graco’s current buckle design.

The company says consumers can verify if their infant car seat is affected by this recall and order a replacement kit by entering the model name and date of manufacture on GracoBuckleRecall.com or calling (877) 766-7470.
