Thousands of Child Safety Seats Recalled
Your BBB® likes to inform the public of some mandatory and voluntary recalls it hears of.
Evenflo is recalling over 56,000 child safety seats, because curious children can loosen the internal harness, increasing the risk of injury in a crash. The recall covers Transitions Three-in-One Combination Booster Seats made from Dec. 18, 2014 through Jan. 29, 2016.
Evenflo says in government documents that the central front adjuster button that loosens the harness may be within a child’s reach. If the harness doesn’t fit snugly, that increases the chance of injury. Evenflo says the problem only affects the seats when they’re used as forward-facing harnessed boosters. The company says no injuries have been reported. The problem was discovered in late January. Evenflo is notifying owners and will send a kit with a new seat pad and front adjuster assembly.
