Evenflo Company, Inc. Initiates Voluntary Safety Recall of Select Convertible Car Seats and Harnessed Booster Seats
May 5 14
Evenflo Company, Inc. is initiating a voluntary recall of select convertible car seats and harnessed booster seats due to the harness crotch buckle. The buckles, which meet all requirements for crashworthiness, may become resistant to unlatching over time, due to exposure to various contaminants (like food and drinks) that are present in everyday use of the seats by toddlers. This condition may make it difficult to remove children from the seat. This Canadian recall involves seats that were built between 2011 and 2014, including select Momentum, Chase, Maestro, Symphony, SureRide, SecureKid, Snugli All-in-One and Snugli Booster models. The affected convertible car seats and harnessed boosters can continue to be used to transport children safely, if the buckles are functioning normally and do not demonstrate unlatching issues. Evenflo has received no reports of injuries to children in connection with these buckles. The company is sending a consumer notice to registered owners of the affected seats to inform them of the action, and is working with retailers to ensure that impacted convertible car seats and harnessed boosters are no longer available for sale. Evenflo will also make available a free remedy kit to consumers that includes a replacement buckle and instructions for installing the new buckle. Importantly, the convertible car seats and harnessed boosters affected by this recall are entirely crashworthy, so they may be used while consumers wait for replacement buckles. Individuals experiencing difficulty unlatching affected buckles before their remedy kit arrives should clean buckles to allow them to function properly. Instructions for cleaning can be found at the dedicated website listed above.
