"Under pressure from U.S. safety regulators, Graco Children's Products is recalling 1.9 million infant car seats in what is now the largest seat recall in American history," the Los Angeles Times reports.

The story reports: "Graco announced the recall Tuesday [July 1, 2014], ending a five-month battle between the company and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration over claims of a faulty buckle that can make it difficult to free a child during an emergency.

"In a report posted on the safety agency's website, Graco outlined its decision to recall the additional seats after further investigation revealed a 'higher than typical level of difficulty' in unlatching the buckle.

"Earlier this year, Graco recalled 4.2 million toddler seats for similar reasons, but denied that the buckle would be a safety issue for the infant car seats because the seat had a different design," the story says.
