Reason for recall

Dorel voluntarily issued the recall because "[t]here is a potential for the harness adjustment strap to loosen during use. If this were to occur, the harness may be loose around the child, possibly increasing the risk of injury in a crash."

What should you do?

If you registered your car seat, Dorel will contact you to provide you with info on how to obtain a repair kit. The company states that you can continue to use the car seats until the repair kit arrives -- just be sure to adjust the harness strap snugly as per the instructions. If you have not registered your car seat, visit the Dorel website.

Want more info?

You can call Dorel toll-free at 866-623-3139. Phone hours are Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern. You can also email the company at consumer@djgusa.com
