Dorel Child Safety Seats Subject of Recall

Dorel Juvenile Group announced it is recalling certain infant, convertible and booster child restraint systems to fix the harness locking and release button that can improperly allow children to move in the seats, which could lead to serious injuries in the event of a crash.

The NHTSA recall affects 55 model numbers manufactured from May 1, 2008 through April 30, 2009. The seats are both stand-alone and part of travel systems with strollers. Dorel said the harness locking and release button does not always return to the locked position and can allow the harness adjustment strap to slip back through the adjuster while a child moves around in the seat. This loose harness could result in injuries during a crash.

Customers will receive free remedy kits consisting of small tubes of non-toxic, food-grade lubricant to be applied to the center front adjuster to prevent sticking and to allow it to properly engage the center front adjuster strap. Information on how to apply the lubricant will be included along with a label to affix to the child seat to indicate the repair has been completed.

Dorel added that customers must include the entire model number when This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
