Graco, the Atlanta-based maker of baby and children's products, said Tuesday it's recalling nearly 3.8 million car safety seats sold between 2009 and 2013 because children can get trapped by buckles that may not unlatch.

Graco says the defect happens when food or drinks get stuck in the buckles.

The company will send replacement buckles for free to customers who have registered their seats or who call the company's hotline (800-345-4109). They can also send an e-mail to consumerservices@gracobaby.com

Here are the seats involved in the recall:
