Evenflo Recalls 56000 Child Seats
  • 56,000 child seats recalled by Evenflo!

The recall was issued due to the risk of children loosening the straps.

Evenflo just announced they will be recalling over 56,000 child safety seats. The recall was issued since it was found that children can loosen the internal harness. The loosening can increase the risk of injury in a crash.

Therefore to ensure safety Evenflo issued the recall since government documents highlighting the problem emerged. According to the documents the central front adjuster button that loosens the harness could be within a child’s reach.

Curious children may pull on the harness repeatedly. If the harness doesn’t fit snugly the chance of injury are increased. 

According to Evenflo the recall covers the Transitions Three-in-One Combination Booster Seats. The particular seats were made from December 2014 through January 2016.

The problem was discovered in January 2016 recently. The problem came to light through the analysis of consumer feedback by Evenflo.

Evenflo has made it clear the recall is just for customer satisfaction and there is no immediate need of concern.

Evenflo has also asked the owners to check if the seat harness is indeed loosened before they replace it with a new seat pad kit. Evenflo has made it clear the loosening only occurs if the child repeatedly pulls on the CFA button. 

Evenflo claims the problem only persists when the seats are used as forward-facing harnessed boosters. According to Evenflo, so far there have been no injuries reported related to the issue.

So in order to deal with the issue Evenflo has notified owners of the recall. Evenflo will also dispatch a kit with a new seat pad and front adjuster assembly as part of the recall.
