Graco, which makes products for babies and children, is recalling almost 3.8 million car safety seats because kids may get stuck when buckles fail to unlatch.

The company says the problem can happen if the buckles become dirty with dried food and beverages.

Graco says if you have these models, you should trying cleaning the buckle. If that doesn't fix the problem you can contact the company for replacement buckles. Call the company's hotline at 800-345-4109 or emailing consumerservices@gracobaby.com.

Here are cleaning tips from the company:

  • Turn the restraint over and push the retainer through the harness strap slot. Place the buckle in a cup of warm water and gently agitate the buckle, pressing the red button several times while it is in the water.
  • Do not submerge the harness webbing and do not use soaps or lubricants, only rinse the harness buckle with warm water.
  • Shake out the excess water and allow the harness buckle to air dry.
  • Reattach the harness buckle into the same slot and re-check harness for correct installation according to the car seat manual before use.

The recall affects car seats sold between 2009 and 2013. These are the models:

The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
