Car Seat Issues With Sticking Buckles
Evenflo is recalling over 1.3 million convertible and booster car seats due to buckle issues. Not all of these are included, however, and at this time, no infant car seats are part of the recall. Read on to see if your child's car seat is included.
Product description: This recall focuses on convertible and booster car seats from Evenflo.
At this time, only the following models are affected:
Look for model number prefixes that begin with: 306, 308, 310, 329, 345, 346, 371 or 385.
Where/when it was sold: These recalled car seats were manufactured between 2011 and 2014 and were sold nationwide at retail stores and online.
Reason for the recall: Evenflo reports that the car seat buckles on these models may become difficult to undo over time, due to the presence of food and drink or other factors. The car seats work as they should in the event of an accident, but a stuck buckle can be dangerous if you need to remove your child quickly. There have been no injuries reported.
What you need to do: Continue to use your car seat. Registered owners will be alerted and will receive replacement buckles and instructions in the mail this month.
