Missing safety information has prompted a recall from Graco Children's Products.

The manufacturer is recalling certain Graco TurboBooster booster seats, models 1967886, 1963973, 1963974, 1963975, 1963976, and 1975173. The instructions for the booster seats are missing the information that the seats should be securely belted to the vehicle at all times, even if the seat is unoccupied.

As a result, these seats fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 213, "Child Restraint Systems."

In the event of a vehicle crash, an unoccupied and unsecured child restraint may strike other occupants and cause injury.

About 21,000 TurboBooster booster seats are missing this required information.

Graco will notify registered owners of the recalled booster seats and provide the missing printed instructions, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin around June 10, 2016.

Non-registered Graco booster seat owners can obtain the missing printed instructions by contacting Graco customer service at (800) 345-4109.
