Evenflo recalling 30K booster seats


DETROIT (AP/WPRI) — Evenflo is recalling nearly 30,000 combination booster seats because children can loosen the harness without an adult’s knowledge.

The recall covers certain Evolve 3-in-1 seats. Government documents say that if the harness is loose, it could increase the risk of injury in a crash.

Evenflo says there have been no reports of injuries, but the company has received 27 complaints that children have been able to loosen the harnesses.

This voluntary recall impacts the use of the seat in the harnessed mode only.

Evolve Booster Seats manufactured prior to February 9, 2016, with the following model numbers are included: 34411700 (US), 34411741 (US), 34411700C (Canada).

The Miamisburg, Ohio, company will notify registered owners and provide a remedy kit with a replacement harness adjustment button at no cost.

To order a remedy kit, visit Evenflo’s website or call the company’s ParentLink Consumer Resource Center at 1-800-233-5921 (US)/ 1-800-265-0749 (Canada). Evenflo asks consumer not to return the seat to retailers.

The recall is expected to start on Sept. 26.
