Evenflo Company, Inc. has issued a recall of certain Transitions 3-in-1 Combination Booster Seats after it was determined that improper tightening of the harness could lead to injury in the event of a crash. Specifically, “the central front adjuster (CFA) button that is used to loosen the seat’s internal harness may be within the child’s reach, allowing the child to activate the CFA and loosen the internal harness.” This risk is associated with using the seat in the forward-facing harnessed booster only.
According to safercar.gov, the recall includes “model numbers 34411686, 34411695, and 34411029, produced from December 18, 2014, through January 29, 2016.” Evenflo plans to “notify owners and provide a remedy kit that includes a newly-designed seat pad and CFA assembly, free of charge.”
If you own any of these booster seat models and have questions, you may contact Evenflo at www.transitions.evenflo.com or 1-800-233-5921. For further information, you may also contact “the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.”
