Child Safety Seat Recall List
Noncompliance: Recaro Child Safety LLC (Recaro) is recalling certain Recaro ProSport model 385 child restraints, manufactured from June 16, 2010, through January 31, 2013. When the affected child seats are installed with the LATCH lower anchors only (without the top tether), the child's head can move excessively, increasing the risk of injury. As such, these seats fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, "Child Restraint Systems."
Consequence: WITHOUT THE LATCH SYSTEM, THE SEAT MAY BE MORE DIFFICULT TO PROPERLY SECURE AND IN THE EVENT OF A VEHICLE CRASH, THE CHILD MAY NOT BE ADEQUATELY PROTECTED AND IS AT AN INCREASED RISK FOR INJURY.
Noncompliance: Certain Evenflo Big Kid Factory Select booster seats, Model Nos. 30911173AD, 3091967AD, 30911118AD, and 30911120D, shipped between August 6, 2012, and September 18, 2012, fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, "Child Restraint Systems." The subject seats were originally manufactured solely for purposes of retail display and not to be sold at retail. Therefore, the seats were packaged without the instruction manual or the required registration card. However, the seats were inadvertently shipped to Evenflo's institutional customers (i.e. hospitals, government agencies) to be given to families. None of the affected units were sold at retail stores.
Corrective Action: Evenflo notified registered owners in April 2014. The company will start providing replacement buckles along with installation instructions in April 2014. Owners may contact Evenflo at 1-800-490-7591 or online at www.buckle.evenflo.com. Note: For a complete list of the production dates of the affected seats, please click on "Associated Documents" and then "Defect Notice(Part 573)." Not all seats within the date ranges listed are included, so consumers should contact Evenflo at the number or website listed here with the seat's model and date of manufacture to confirm that their seat is included.
Corrective Action: DJG WILL NOTIFY REGISTERED OWNERS AND DISTRIBUTORS. BASES WHICH INCLUDE LATCH SYSTEMS WILL BE PROVIDED AT NO COST TO ALL THOSE WHO VERIFY THEY HAVE THE AFFECTED UNITS. NON-REGISTERED OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT DJG AT 1-877-416-8111 OR BY EMAIL AT INFANTLATCHRECALL@DJGUSA.COM.
Corrective Action: Graco will replace the buckle with a new design, free of charge. The recall began on August 5, 2014. Owners may contact Graco at 1-877-766-7470 or online at email@example.com, or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: In addition, Graco will conduct a consumer satisfaction campaign to cover infant child restraints manufactured with AmSafe QT3 and Signature buckles. Under this consumer satisfaction campaign, the company will provide a replacement buckle at no cost to any consumer upon their request for the useful life of the child restraint. To see if your model may be covered, or for additional information, call Graco at 1-877-766-7470, visit www.gracobucklerecall.com, or email email@example.com.
