Graco TurboBooster Recall Announced

Graco has issued a recall to notify owners of their TurboBoosters, that several models do not have a warning instructing owners to keep the seats buckled in at all times, even if the booster seat is not occupied.  This warning is important because any car seat that is not secured can become airborne in the event of a crash, posing a risk to all occupants in the vehicle.
