Evenflo recalls 56,000 child booster seats
Evenflo has voluntarily recalled three models of its Transitions 3-in-1 Combination Booster Seat. According to a press release, the company issued the recall because children can access the seat’s harness adjuster button, loosening the harness.
No injuries have been reported. The concern was identified through the company’s regular review of customer feedback.
The recall includes approximately 56,000 seats with model numbers 34411686, 34411695 and 34411029 manufactured before Jan. 29, 2016.
According to its statement, the safety concern does not apply to consumers using the seat in its second and third modes: the high-back belt-positioning mode and the no-back belt-positioning mode.
Affected customers can receive a free remedy kit that includes a replacement bottom seat pad, a Central Front Adjuster and installation instructions.
The free remedy kit can be ordered at http://www.transitions.evenflo.com, or by contacting Evenflo at 1-800-233-5921, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
“If your child is only able to use the Transitions seat in harnessed mode because of his or her size and you’ve observed your child pulling back the seat pad to access the Central Front Adjuster, please discontinue using the seat until you’ve installed the free remedy kit,” said Evenflo Safety Advocate Sarah Haverstick. “If your child is 40 pounds and 43 inches tall, fitting the requirements for using the seat in its two belt-positioning modes, or is not pulling back the seat pad in harnessed mode, the seat may be used safely until your remedy kit arrives.”
